About Schmidtea mediterranea

The freshwater planarian Schmidtea mediterranea is commonly used as a model for regeneration and development of tissues, due to its ability to regenerate large portions of missing body parts.

Genome assembly: SmedGD_c1.3

The S. mediterranea genome has been sequenced by the Stowers Institute and the Genome Institute at Washington University. The assembly version represented is SmedGD_v1.3 from SmedGD, as described by Robb et al (2007).

Gene annotation

The original gene predictions were made by the Stowers Institute, as described by Robb et al (2007). The gene models have since been iteratively improved. The version represented here is v1.3 from SmedGD.

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.
