About Opisthorchis viverrini

Opisthorchis viverrini, commonly known as the Southeast Asian liver fluke, is a trematode parasite from the family Opisthorchiidae that attacks the area of the bile duct. Infection is acquired when people ingest raw or undercooked fish. It causes the disease opisthorchiasis (also called clonorchiasis). The disease is linked cholangiocarcinoma, a cancer of the gall bladder and/or its ducts.

Genome assembly: OpiViv1.0

The genome was sequenced by the Gasser laboratory at the University of Melbourne, as described by Young et al (2014).

Gene annotation

The gene predictions were made by the Gasser laboratory at the University of Melbourne, as described by Young et al (2014). The version represented here is consistent with the INSDC records.

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.
