Apis cerana cerana is a subspecies of eastern honeybee, Apis cerana, and it plays a vital role in ecological maintenance in China. However, A. c. cerana is threatened by many pathogenic microorganisms including Nosema ceranae, a widespread fungal parasite that infected worldwide colonies. In this article, un-challenged (AcCK1, AcCK2) and N. ceranae-challenged midguts of A. c. cerana workers (AcT1, AcT2) were sequenced utilizing Nanopore long-read sequencing technology. Totally, 11,727,628, 6,996,395, 14,383,735 and 11,580,154 raw reads were yielded from AcCK1, AcCK2, AcT1 and AcT2; the average lengths were 1147 bp, 908 bp, 992 bp and 1077 bp, and the average N50 were 1308 bp, 911 bp, 1079 bp and 1192 bp. The length distribution of was ranged 1 kb to more than 10 kb. Additionally, the quality (Q) score distribution of raw reads was among Q7~Q17. Further, 11,617,144, 6,940,895, 14,277,240 and 11,501,562 clean reads were respectively obtained from AcCK1, AcCK2, AcT1 and AcT2, and among them 78.40%, 82.50%, 79.05% and 80.20% were identified as full-length clean reads. In addition, full-length clean reads from AcCK1, AcT1, AcT2 and AcCK2 were ranged from 1 kb to more than 10 kb in length. Finally, the length distribution of redundant reads-removed full-length transcripts was among 1 kb~5 kb.
