Bactrian camels serve as an important means of transportation in the cold desert
regions of China and Mongolia. Here we present a 2.01 Gb draft genome sequence
from both a wild and a domestic bactrian camel. We estimate the camel genome to
be 2.38 Gb, containing 20,821 protein-coding genes.
Representing a basal branch of arachnids, scorpions are known as 'living fossils'
that maintain an ancient anatomy and are adapted to have survived extreme
climate changes. Here we report the genome sequence of Mesobuthus martensii,
containing 32,016 protein-coding genes, the most among sequenced arthropods.
