Nylanderia fulva


The genome of the tawny crazy ant, Nylanderia fulva, was sequenced to provide a resource for targeting genes using RNAi approaches for controlling this invasive pest ant, and for providing genomic resources to the community of researchers studying ants. Genomic DNA was extracted from pooled whole bodies of individual worker ants from a single colony from Texas City, Texas, U.S.A.
