About Romanomermis culicivorax

The nematode Romanomermis culicivorax is an entomopathogenic parasite that invades larvae of various mosquito species killing these when emerging at the J4 stage. R. culicivorax is being tested as a biological pest control to fight malaria. Although only distantly related to C. elegans it has proved to be a particularly amenable study object for analyzing embryogenesis.

Genome assembly: nRc.2.0

The R. culicivorax genome has been sequenced by the University of Cologne, as described by Schiffer et al (2013). The data represented here is version nRc.2.0 from nematodes.org.

Gene annotation

The gene predictions were made by the University of Cologne, as described by Schiffer et al (2013). The version represented here is nRc.2.0.1 from nematodes.org.

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.
