Looking for new ways to stop the spread of Lyme disease, a large group of scientists have completed sequencing the genome of the deer tick, which spreads the disease. "The genome provides a foundation for a whole new era in tick research," said Purdue University entomologist Catherine Hill, lead author of the paper, "now that we've cracked the tick's code, we can begin to design strategies to control ticks, to understand how they transmit disease and to interfere with that process." Release
