About Fasciola hepatica
The trematode Fasciola hepatica, or sheep liver fluke or common liver fluke, is a parasite that infects humans, cows and sheep. It causes a disease called fascioliasis, infection arises from ingestion of metacercariae on water plants such as watercress. In the UK, Fasciola is generally common in farmed livestock which graze upon wetland pastures where the parasites intermediate snail host thrives.
There is 1 alternative genome project for Fasciola hepatica available in WormBase ParaSite: PRJEB6687
Genome assembly: F_hepatica_1.0.allpaths.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University, and submitted in late 2013 as part of the 50 Helminth Genomes Initiative (Helminth Genomes Consortium, unpublished).
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University, and submitted in late 2013 as part of the 50 Helminth Genomes project (Helminth Genomes Consortium, unpublished).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.
What can I find? Orthologues, paralogues, and gene trees across multiple species.
