Apis cerana cerana is a subspecies of eastern honeybee, Apis cerana. Nosema ceranae is a widespread fungal parasite of honeybee, causing heavy losses for beekeeping industry all over the world. In this article, total RNA of normal midguts (AcCK1, AcCK2) and N. ceranae-infected midguts of A. c. cerana workers at 7 d and 10 d post inoculation (AcT1, AcT2) were respectively isolated followed by strand-specific cDNA library construction and next-generation RNA sequencing. In tolal, 56270223688, 44860946964, 78991623806, and 92712308296 raw reads were derived from AcCK1, AcCK2, AcT1 and AcT2, respectively. Following strict quality control, 54495191388, 43570608753, 76708161525, and 89467858351 clean reads were obtained, with Q30 value of 95.80%, 95.99%, 96.07% and 96.04%, and GC content of 44.20%, 43.44%, 44.83% and 43.63%, respectively. The raw data were submitted to the NCBI Sequence Read Archive database and connected to BioProject PRJNA562784. These data offers a valuable resource for deep investigation of mechanisms underlying eastern honeybee responding to N. ceranae infection and host-fungal parasite interaction during microsporidiosis.
