We have sequenced and assembled a significant portion of the cattle tick genome and transcriptome, presently at an overall 0.5X coverage. However, the coverage of the gene-rich regions of the genome are at ~2X coverage. This genomic resource will be hosted at Murdoch University, Perth, Western Australia as CattleTickBase ( We have used this genomic information and additional proteomic and transcriptomic information to guide investigations to select antigens for evaluations in anti-cattle tick vaccine cattle stall trials.
