About Ancylostoma duodenale

The nematode Ancylostoma duodenale, or human hookworm, is a parasite that lives in the human intestine that is particularly harmful to children, causing chronic anaemia, stunted growth and impaired intellectual development. It is difficult to study in a laboratory setting.

Genome assembly: A_duodenale_2.2.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University, and submitted in late 2013 as part of the 50 Helminth Genomes Initiative (Helminth Genomes Consortium, unpublished).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University, and submitted in late 2013 as part of the 50 Helminth Genomes project (Helminth Genomes Consortium, unpublished).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.
