Alignment of Rhodnius robustus transcriptome reads to Rhodnius spp. cytochrome b sequences. Transcriptome reads were retrieved from the benchmark Rhodnius robustus stocks used in R. montenegrensis’ description and in later transcriptome-based comparisons. The graphs present breath-coverage (% of positions; bold vertical lines; left vertical axis) and mean depth-coverage (reads/position; bars; right vertical axis) for queries against four R. robustus transcriptomes (SRX1996483, SRX1996484, ERX1387159 and ERX1387160; [7, 12, 13, 21]). Red lines/bars highlight queries yielding full-breadth-coverage; queries yielding only partial-breadth-coverage are black/grey.
