Presented here is the sequenced genome of Jerdon’s jumping ant (Harpegnathos saltator). The jumping ant has a distinct caste and social behavior system, and its genome offers interesting insights into epigenetics in aging and behavior. The Illumina Genome Analyzer platform was used to sequence a genomic library, obtaining more than 100-fold coverage of the estimated 330 Mb genome. The draft genomic assembly reached a scaffold N50 size of ~600 kb and covers more than 90% of the ant’s genome.
