Draft Genome Sequence of Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus, the European House Dust Mite

Genome Announc. 2017 Aug 10;5(32):e00789-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00789-17.


Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus is the European dust mite and a major source of human allergens. Here, we present the first draft genome sequence of the mite, as well as the ab initio gene prediction and functional analyses that will facilitate comparative genomic analyses with other mite species.
