National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov. These sequences have been deposited at DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank Accession Sequence Submission KX228535-KX228550.

Interpretive Summary: Determining the origin of the cattle tick, Rhipicephalus microplus, will be helpful to the effort to find biological control agents. Molecular phylogenetics can assist in this determination. Thus, we sequenced and assembled partial gene sequences from the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I coding region. These sequences have been deposited at DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank under the accession numbers KX228535-KX228550.
