Abstract

The cat flea, , is widely recognized as a global veterinary pest and a vector of pathogenic bacteria. We recently reported on the . nuclear genome, which is characterized by over 38% protein coding gene duplication, extensive tRNA gene family expansion, and remarkable gene copy number variation (CNV) between individual fleas. Herein, we describe the assembly of the . mitochondrial genome, a novel resource for comparative genomics of fleas and other insects. The order and content of mitochondrial genes is highly consistent with four previously sequenced flea mitochondrial genomes, limiting CNV to siphonapteran nuclear genomes.
