Endosymbionts' genomes extracted from tick metagenomes

Marie Buysse & Olivier Duron
We have reconstructed the genomes of bacterial endosymbionts (Coxiella-LE, Francisella-LE and Coxiella burnetii) from the tick metagenomes of the BioProject PRJCA002242 available on the BIGD database (https://bigd.big.ac.cn/). Jia et al. (Jia et al., 2020, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cell.2020.07.023; the original paper of the BioProject PRJCA002242) reported major discoveries on the genetic basis of hematophagy and vector capacities in ticks. Our re-examination of the tick metagenomic datasets shows that nutritional endosymbionts required for hematophagy were also widely present. They...
