Alignment of Rhodnius robustus transcriptome reads to Rhodnius spp. ribosomal DNA sequences. Transcriptome reads were retrieved from the benchmark Rhodnius robustus stocks used in R. montenegrensis’ description and in later transcriptome-based comparisons; query sequences include two nuclear rDNA loci: ITS2 (upper row) and D2-28S (lower row). 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.
