About Trichinella sp. T6

One of the Trichinella genus of parasitic nematodes, the causative agents of trichinosis (also known as trichinellosis). The unnamed genotype Trichinella T6 is closely related to T. nativa and has been detected in several regions of Canada (British Columbia, Ontario, Manitoba) and the United States (Alaska, Montana, Idaho, Pennsylvania). Natural hybrids between Trichinella T6 and T. nativa have been detected in nature, suggesting a recent separation between the two taxa.

Genome assembly: T6_ISS34_r1.0

The genome of Trichinella sp. T6 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)).

Gene annotation

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.

Comparative genomics

What can I find? Orthologues, paralogues, and gene trees across multiple species.
