About Ancylostoma ceylanicum

The nematode Ancylostoma ceylanicum, or mammalian hookworm, is a parasite that attaches to the intestine of animals - particularly humans and hamsters - causing anaemia in the host. It is a good model for studying human hookworms.

There is 1 alternative genome project for Ancylostoma ceylanicum available in WormBase ParaSite: PRJNA231479

Genome assembly: A_ceylanicum1.3.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University, and submitted in late 2013 as part of the 50 Helminth Genomes Initiative (Helminth Genomes Consortium, unpublished).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University, and submitted in late 2013 as part of the 50 Helminth Genomes project (Helminth Genomes Consortium, unpublished).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.
