About Echinococcus granulosus
The cestode Echinococcus granulosus is a member of the Cyclophyllidea, which comprise the majority of tapeworms that are of medical importance. Adult E. granulosus parasitise the small intestines of dogs and other canids. Larval stages cause the serious and life-threatening human diseases cystic echinococcosis. E. granulosus has a worldwide distribution.
There is 1 alternative genome project for Echinococcus granulosus available in WormBase ParaSite: PRJEB121
Genome Assembly & Annotation
The genome of E. granulosus was sequenced using Roche 454 technology and assembled with Newbler. This genome was produced by the Key Laboratory of Health and Disease Genomics, in the Chinese National Human Genome Center, as described in Zheng and al (2013).
