Taxonomic assignment of contigs using Uniref90 best blast hits. The bars correspond to the number of contigs assigned to different taxonomic groups (the percentage of contigs assigned to each taxonomic group is shown in brackets). Best hits to “Acari”, which include ticks and mites are hits to Acari species other than I. ricinus and I. scapularis. Best hits to “Arachnida”, which also include spiders and scorpions, are hits to Arachnida species other than Acari. The mean percentage of identity at the amino acid level and the standard deviation are shown after the taxon name
