Genomic resources for platyhelminths of the class Monogenea are scarce; despite the diversity of these parasites, some species are highly pathogenic to their fish hosts. This work ( aimed to generate de novo-assembled transcriptomes of two monogenean species, Scutogyrus longicornis (Dactylogyridae) and Rhabdosynochus viridisi (Diplectanidae). These transcriptomes consist of 47,187 and 25,696 putative proteins, further annotated according to Swiss-Prot, Pfam, GO, KEGG, and COG databases. The present study provides the first publicly available transcriptomes for monogeneans of the subclass Monopisthocotylea, which can serve as valuable genomic datasets for functional genomics research of this important group of parasites.
