Microbiol Resour Announc. 2018 Nov 8;7(18):e01221-18. doi: 10.1128/MRA.01221-18. eCollection 2018 Nov.


The poultry red mite, Dermanyssus gallinae, is a major worldwide concern in the egg-laying industry. Here, we report the first draft genome assembly and gene prediction of Dermanyssus gallinae, based on combined PacBio and MinION long-read de novo sequencing. The ∼959-Mb genome is predicted to encode 14,608 protein-coding genes.
