Centruroides sculpturatus

Resource Type
Common Name
Bark scorpion

Provides appropriate phylogenetic sampling across diversity of class Arachnida.

Data were generated by the Baylor College of Medicine's i5k pilot project.

Genome update. Previously, the i5k Workspace@NAL hosted Cscul.scaffolds.50.fa.gz, BCM version 0.5.3 and Funtional annotation of BCM veriosn 0.5.3. The assembly and annotations have updated to the most recent assembly, Centruroides sculpturatus genome assembly Cexi_2.0 (GCF_000671375.1) (, NCBI Centruroides sculpturatus Annotation Release 100 (, and Functional annotations of NCBI Centruroides sculpturatusa Annotation Release 100 (
