Rhodnius prolixus was sequenced by the Washington University School of Medicine, Genome Sequencing Center (WUGSC) in September 2010. The whole-genome shotgun plasmid, bac end reads and 454 reads were assembled using the CABOG assembler. DNA was isolated from the colony at the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, USA. It is composed of 58,560 contigs assembled into 27,872 scaffolds with a total length of 702 Mb. This includes 141 Mb (20%) of padding characters.
