The genome sequence of the common yellow swallowtail, Papilio machaon(Linnaeus, 1758)

Lohse K. et al.

We present a genome assembly from an individual female Papilio machaon (the common yellow swallowtail; Arthropoda; Insecta; Lepidoptera; Papilionidae). The genome sequence is 252 megabases in span. The majority of the assembly (99.97\%) is scaffolded into 31 chromosomal pseudomolecules with the W and Z sex chromosomes assembled. The complete mitochondrial genome was also assembled and is 15.3 kilobases in length. Gene annotation of this assembly on Ensembl has identified 14,323 protein coding genes.
