Sheep scab, caused by infestation with Psoroptes ovis, is highly contagious, results in intense pruritus, and represents a major welfare and economic concern. Here, we report the first draft genome assembly and gene prediction of P. ovis based on PacBio de novo sequencing. The ∼63.2-Mb genome encodes 12,041 protein-coding genes.
Accession number(s).This whole-genome shotgun project has been deposited at DDBJ/ENA/GenBank under the accession number PQWQ00000000. The version described in this paper is the first version, PQWQ01000000.
