May 2014, Annotation Release 101:

This full annotation run includes the following assembly(ies):

The Nasonia genus includes three closely related species of wasps that parasitize various blowfly species. Nasonia vitripennis is found throughout the world, and is estimated to have diverged from N. giraulti and N. longicornis approximately 1.0 Mya. The three species are normally genetically isolated from each other owing to Wolbachia-induced cytoplasmic incompatibility, but laboratory strains cured of Wolbachia are interfertile providing a useful source of genetic and sequence variation for mapping studies. Consequently, Nasonia serves as a useful model system, particularly for the study of the genetics of complex traits and for comparative developmental genetics.

The Search bar or the BLAST search link above can be used to find annotation or sequence in the assembly. The sequence-based maps for any contig of interest can then be displayed. Results are indicated in a tabular format. The results table includes links to a contig graphical view where the gene or marker can be seen in the context of additional data. For genes, a particularly useful display includes the Gene, RefSeq transcript, rnaNvi, and OGS_RNA sequence maps. Use the "Maps & Options" window to configure each display.

Other genomes can also be viewed in the NCBI Map Viewer. The Map Viewer home page provides a current list.
