About Ancylostoma caninum

The nematode Ancylostoma caninum, or dog hookworm, causes disease in dogs resulting in severe anaemia and death. This species, which belongs to the group of parasites most closely related to C. elegans, is a widely used model for hookworm infection.

Genome assembly: A_caninum_9.3.2.ec.cg.pg

The genome assembly was produced by the Mitreva laboratory at the Genome Institute of Washington University, and submitted in late 2013 as part of the 50 Helminth Genomes Initiative (Helminth Genomes Consortium, unpublished).

Gene annotation

The gene predictions were made by the Mitreva laboratory at the Genome Institute of Washington University, and submitted in late 2013 as part of the 50 Helminth Genomes project (Helminth Genomes Consortium, unpublished).

What can I find? Protein-coding and non-coding genes, splice variants, cDNA and protein sequences, non-coding RNAs.

Comparative genomics

What can I find? Orthologues, paralogues, and gene trees across multiple species.
