Apis cerana cerana is a subspecies of eastern honeybee, Apis cerana. Ascosphaera apis is a widespread fungal pathogen of honeybee, leading to chalkbrood, which results in heavy losses for beekeeping industry. In this article, 4-, 5-, and 6-day-old larval guts of un-infected (AcCK1, AcCK2, and AcCK3) and A. apis-infected A. c. cerana (AcT1, AcT2, and AcT3) were sequenced by next generation sequencing. Totally, 73830148, 96586212, 94552744, 76672564, 90954858, and 83418832 raw reads were respectively produced from AcCK1, AcCK2, AcCK3, AcT1, AcT2, and AcT3. The sequencing depth was enough to detect all expressed genes. After strict quality control, 73775592, 96513798, 94495000, 76593924, 90870608 and 83339288 clean reads were obtained, with a mean GC content of 48.54%. Additionally, average Q20 and Q30 for aforementioned six groups were 98.10% and 94.36%, respectively. Moreover, 45302685, 65872823, 52709987, 49947838, 56476339, and 42657156 clean reads from above-mentioned six groups were mapped to the reference genome of Apis cerana, respectively. In addition, exons were the most abundant regions in reference genome mapped by clean reads, followed by intergenic regions and introns. Our data presented here can be used to identify long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), circlular RNAs (circRNAs), mRNAs and their regulatory networks engaged in response of eastern honeybee larvae to A. apis infection, and decipher molecular mechanisms underlying host-pathogen interaction. ### Competing Interest Statement The authors have declared no competing interest.
