Diaphorina citri


Organism information:

The Asian citrus psyllid, Diaphorina citri, is a sap-sucking, hemipteran bug in the family, Psyllidae. It is an important pest of citrus, as it is one of only two confirmed vectors of the serious citrus disease, Huanglongbing or greening disease (Lallemand, J., A. Fos, and J. M. Bové. 1986. Transmission de la bacterie associé à la forme africaine de la maladie du “greening” par le psylle asiatique Diaphorina citri Kuwayama. Fruits 41: 341-343.)

It is widely distributed in southern Asia and has spread to other citrus growing regions.

Genome information:

The Diaphorina citri genome is co-hosted at https://citrusgreening.org/. Currently, all manual annotation is conducted there. For more information, go to https://citrusgreening.org/annotation/index.

Diaphorina citri currently has two assembly versions available at the i5k Workspace@NAL: diaci1.1, which was generated by the Baylor College of Medicine, and NCBI-diaci1.1, which is the NCBI GenBank- and RefSeq-processed version of diaci1.1.

Annotations were computed separately on both assemblies: MAKER2 was run on diaci1.1, and the NCBI Gnomon pipeline was run on NCBI-diaci1.1, which was subsequently added to RefSeq (NCBI Diaphorina citri Annotation Release 100).

The Web Apollo manual curation tool and JBrowse genome browser are available for the NCBI datasets only. Blast is available for both datasets.

Assembly statistics and annotation information below are listed for the most recent datasets: Assembly NCBI-diaci1.1, and NCBI Diaphorina citri Annotation Release 100.
