First Draft Genome of the Trypanosomatid Herpetomonas muscarum ingenoplastis through MinION Oxford Nanopore Technology and Illumina Sequencing

Trop Med Infect Dis. 2020 Feb 13;5(1):25. doi: 10.3390/tropicalmed5010025.


Here, we present first draft genome sequence of the trypanosomatid Herpetomonas muscarum ingenoplastis. This parasite was isolated repeatedly in the black blowfly, Phormia regina, and it forms a phylogenetically distinct clade in the Trypanosomatidae family.

Keywords: Trypanosomatidae; genome assembly; insect trypanosomatids; monoxenous trypanosomatids; whole genome.
