Abstract

We report the 4,385,577-bp high-quality draft assembly of the bacterial symbiont Rhodococcus rhodnii strain LMG5362, isolated from the gut of Rhodnius prolixus (Hemiptera, Reduviidae, Triatominae), the principle vector of the protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi, the etiological agent of Chagas disease. This sequence might provide useful information for subsequent studies of the symbiotic relationship between Rd. prolixus and Rc. rhodnii, while also providing a starting point for the development of biotechnological applications for the control of Rd. prolixus.
