About Trichinella nativa

The nematode Trichinella nativa is a parasite of a wide variety of mammals and birds. It is highly pathogenic and has a high resistance to freezing as it is encapsulated. Trichinellosis is caused by the ingestion of undercooked meat containing encysted larvae, the first signs include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, fatigue, fever, and abdominal discomfort.

There is 1 alternative genome project for Trichinella nativa available in WormBase ParaSite: PRJNA179527

Genome assembly: T2_ISS10_r1.0
