Data from: Mitochondrial genomes of Columbicola feather lice are highly fragmented, indicating repeated evolution of minicircle-type genomes in parasitic lice



Data files associated with the assembly of mitochondrial minicircles from five species of parasitic lice. This includes data from four species in the genus Columbicola and from the human louse (Pediculus humanus). The files include FASTA sequences for all five species, reference sequences for read mapping approaches, resulting contigs produced by various assembly approaches, and alignments of human louse minicircles mapped to published sequences of the same species.
