Tick and Mite Genomes Consortium. Genome analysis of Major Tick and Mite Vectors of Human Pathogens

Here we propose immediate sequencing of the mite vector of scrub typhus, Leptotrombidium deliense, and additional sequencing of I. scapularis to expand genomic resources for this group. These projects will provide the anchor for additional sampling of species at increasing evolutionary distance. We also identify six members of the Ixodida (Dermacentor variabilis, Amblyomma americanum, I. pacificus, I. ricinus, I. persulcatus and Ornithodorus turicata) that are considered high priority sequencing targets by the tick and mite research communities.
