Current generation of high-throughput DNA sequencing machines [1, 35, 66] can generate large amounts of DNA sequence data. For example, the machine HiSeq 2000 from the company Illumina, a current workhorse of genome centers, is capable of generating 600 Giga base-pairs of sequence in one single run [35].

Tarantulas are included in the mygalomorph spider family Theraphosidae. Although the pharmacological diversity of theraphosid toxins (theraphotoxins) is broad, studies dedicated to the characterization of biologically active molecules from the theraphosid genus Acanthoscurria have been restricted to the investigation of antimicrobial peptides and polyamines(More)
