About the Project

The Lucilia cuprina genome sequence and its analysis has been published in Nature Communications, "Lucilia cuprina genome unlocks parasitic fly biology to underpin future interventions."

We at the BCM-HGSC would like to thank the many members of the L. cuprina community whose hard work has made this a successful project.
