News on the Genomic Front

In exciting news on progress with genomic projects I am working on:

We now have assembled ‘venomes’ (venom transcriptomes) for two species of Centruroides. Guillaume Vandenesch from Agro Paris Tech will be analyzing the transcriptome data, looking for venom gene families.

The Centruroides genome has been sequenced and is beginning to be assembled at Baylor’s HGSC! Can’t wait for the genome to come down the pipeline for annotation!
