Interpretive Summary: Next-generation DNA sequencing technology was used to sequence the genome of the cattle tick, Rhipicephalus microplus. The DNA was derived from 14 day old eggs from the Deutsch Texas outbreak strain reared at the USDA-ARS Cattle Fever Tick Research Laboratory, Edinburg, TX. Each corresponding dataset of raw sequence reads has been deposited at NCBI under the BioProject accession number PRJNA412317 and and BioSample accession number SAMN06075429. The Short Read Archive (SRA) accession number is SRR6760458. USDA is an equal opportunity employer.
