About Echinococcus canadensis

The cestode Echinococcus canadensis belongs to the complex Echinococcus granulosus sensu lato. This parasite is a member of Cyclophyllidea which comprise the majority of tapeworms that are of medical importance. Adult E. canadensis parasitise the small intestines of dogs and other canids. The larval stage is one of the causative agents of the serious and life-threatening human disease cystic echinococcosis. E. canadensis has a worldwide distribution.

Genome assembly: ECANG7_assembly_v1

The G7 genotype has been sequenced and assembled by the BMHID group at Instituto de Microbiología y Parasitología Médica, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina; and the Genomics and Computational Biology Group of the CPqRR at Oswaldo Cruz Foundation, Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The work is described by Kamenetzky et al (manuscript in preparation). This work is described part of the work "Comparative genomics of three species of the genus Echinococcus" by Lucas L Maldonado; Juliana Assis; Flávio Gomes Araújo; Izinara Rosse; Natalia Macchiaroli; Marcela Cucher; Mara Rosenzvit; Guilherme Oliveira and Laura Kamenetzky (manuscript in preparation).
