About Trichinella pseudospiralis
One of the Trichinella genus of parasitic nematodes, the causative agents of trichinosis (also known as trichinellosis). Trichinella pseudospiralis is a species which does not encapsulate in host muscle tissue and infects mammals and birds worldwide. This strain of T. pseudospiralis, ISS470, had a black vulture from the United States as its original host.
Genome assembly: T4_ISS470_r1.0
The genome of T. pseudospiralis was produced by the Gasser laboratory at the University of Melbourne, as part of the assembly and analysis of all 12 recognized Trichinella species (described in Korhonen et al (2016)).
The gene predictions were made by the Gasser laboratory at the University of Melbourne.
What can I find? Protein-coding and non-coding genes, splice variants, cDNA and protein sequences, non-coding RNAs.
