Interpretive Summary: In a collaboration with Purdue University researchers, we sequenced a 143,606 base pair Rhipicephalus microplus library clone that contained the coding region for acetylcholinesterase 1 (AChE1). The clone sequencing resulted in the production of a single assembled contig which has been submitted and published under NCBI GenBank Accession Number KP284305. USDA is an equal opportunity employer.

Technical Abstract: In a collaboration with Purdue University researchers, we sequenced a 143,606 base pair Rhipicephalus microplus BAC library clone that contained the coding region for acetylcholinesterase 1 (AChE1). Sequencing was by Sanger protocols and the final assembly resulted in 15 contigs of varying length, each of which has been submitted and published under NCBI GenBank Accession Number KP284305.
