Abstract: 
Understanding the genomic underpinnings of antipredatory behaviors is a hot topic in eco-evolutionary research. Yellow-bellied toad of the genus Bombina are textbook examples of the deimatic display, a time-structured behavior aimed at startling predators. Here, we generated the first de novo brain transcriptome of the Apennine yellow-bellied toad Bombina pachypus, a species showing inter-individual variation in the deimatic display. Through Rna-Seq experiments on a set of individuals showing distinct behavioral phenotypes, we generated 316,329,573 reads, which were assembled and annotated. The high-quality assembly was confirmed by assembly validators and by aligning the contigs against the de novo transcriptome with a mapping percentage higher than 91.0%. The homology annotation with DIAMOND (blastx) led to 77,391 contigs annotated on Nr, Swiss Prot and TrEMBL, whereas the domain and site protein prediction made with InterProScan led to 4747 GO-annotated and 1025 KEGG-annotated contigs. The B. pachypus transcriptome described here will be a valuable resource for further studies on the genomic underpinnings of behavioral variation in amphibians.
