About Strongyloides venezuelensis

The nematode Strongyloides venezuelensis, or threadworm, is a minute gastro-intestinal parasite found in mouse. S. venezuelensis is a laboratory analogue of the human parasite, S. stercoralis.

Genome Assembly & Annotation

Assembly

The draft genome assembly was produced by the Parasite Genomic group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in collaboration with the Division of Parasitology at the University of Miyazaki, as part of the WTSI Strongyloididae Nematode Genomes Project, Hunt et al. (2016).

Annotation

The gene predictions were made by the Parasite Genomics group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in collaboration with the Division of Parasitology at the University of Miyazaki, as part of the Strongyloididae Nematode Genomes Project, Hunt et al. (2016). An in-house automatic pipeline (based around AUGUSTUS plus MAKER) was used to generate first-pass gene models, and this was followed by a round of targeted manual curation of selected gene families.
