The first genome of a myriapod, the geophilomorph centipede  Strigamia maritama, has been sequenced. 

Arthropods are the most species-rich group of animals on Earth. Of the four main arthropod groups alive today, insects, crustaceans, chelicerates and myriapods, it is the latter (which includes centipedes and millipedes) for which the genome had not been sequenced.
