Dear all,

The genome paper for the louse Pediculus humanus is available,
This insect has the smallest number of genes yet for an arthropod. 
It has however a "complete" gene set; its extras have been lost.

Find at 
http://www.pnas.org/cgi/doi/10.1073/pnas.1003379107

Genome sequences of the human body louse and its 
primary endosymbiont provide insights into the 
permanent parasitic lifestyle.
