Colorado potato beetle genome has been sequenced

We are very excited that the genome of the Colorado potato beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata) has been sequenced as part of the i5K project by the Human Genome Sequencing Center at Baylor College of Medicine. Sean Schoville from University of Wisconsin will be leading the manual annotation of the genome. I will help in coordinating the community.

If you are interested in participating in the manual annotation of the L. decemlineata, please contact me and I will send you directions on how to participate. The genomic resources have been posted here.
