About Steinernema carpocapsae
Steinernema carpocapsae is a parasitic nematode capable of infecting a broad range of insect species. The infective juvenile, which emerges from a depleted host cadaver to seek out a new insect to infect, is the only free-living stage. Infective juveniles tend to be found at the soil surface, and use an ambushing search strategy in which they stand on their tails and attach to a passing insect.
Genome Assembly & Annotation
The genome assembly was produced by the California Institute of Technology in collaboration with the University of California Irvine. The version of the genome represented here is that submitted directly to WormBase in 2014, which is similar to, but not exactly the same as, NCBI assembly GCA_000757645.1.
