About Soboliphyme baturini

The nematode Soboliphyme baturini is a stomach- or intestinal-dwelling parasite mainly of Holarctic mustelids (Martes and Mustela) and is included in the 50HG project as a comparator the first representative of this order for which specimens could be obtained. Larvae develop in oligochaete (earthworms) and it is thought the life cycle involves only two hosts. Members of this genus and family are also found in insectivores and shrews.

Genome assembly: S_baturini_Dall_Island_v1_0_4

The draft genome assembly was produced by the Parasite Genomic group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, in collaboration with Joseph Cook (University of New Mexico), using Illumina paired-end sequencing followed by an in-house genome assembly pipeline comprising various steps, including contig assembly, scaffolding, gap-filling and error-correction (Helminth Genomes Consortium, unpublished).

Gene annotation

The gene predictions were made by the Parasite Genomics group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and WormBase, as part of the 50 Helminth Genomes Initiative (Helminth Genomes Consortium, unpublished). An in-house pipeline was developed that used MAKER to generate high-quality annotations by integrating evidence from multiple sources: ab initio gene predictions from AUGUSTUS, GeneMark-ES, and SNAP; projected annotation from C. elegans (using GenBlastG) and the taxonomically nearest reference helminth genome (using RATT); and ESTs, mRNAs and proteins from related organisms aligned to the genome using BLAST, with refinement of alignments using Exonerate.

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.
