To understand the characteristics of the transcriptional group of Taenia pisiformis at different developmental stages, and to lay the foundation for the screening of vaccine antigens and drug target genes, the transcriptomes of adult and larva of T. pisiformis were assembled and analyzed using bioinformatic tools. A total of 36,951 unigenes with a mean length of 950bp were formed, among which 12,665, 8,188, 7,577, and 6,293 unigenes have been annotated respectively by sequence similarity analysis with four databases (NR, Swiss-Prot, KOG, and KEGG). It should be noted there are 5,662 unigenes that share good similarity with the four databases and get a relatively perfect functional annotation. Besides, a total of 10,247 differentially expressed genes were screened. To be specific, 6,910 unigenes were up-regulated in the larva stage while 3,337 were down-regulated in the adult stage. To sum up, this study sequenced and analyzed the transcriptomes of the larval and adult stages of T. pisiformis. The results of differentially expressed genes in these two stages could provide basis for functional genomics, immunology and gene expression profiles of T. pisiformis.
