It is closely related to A. lumbricoides, the human large roundworm parasite, one of the most common human parasitic infections in the world. Cross infections of A. suum to humans and A. lumbricoides to pigs has been reported.

Genome Assembly & Annotation
The A. suum genome was sequenced by the Gasser laboratory at the University of Melbourne, as described by Jex et al (2011). The version of the genome represented here is that submitted directly to WormBase in 2011, which is similar to, but not exactly the same as, NCBI assembly GCA_000298755.1.
