About Trichinella sp. T8

One of the Trichinella genus of parasitic nematodes, the causative agents of trichinosis (also known as trichinellosis). The unnamed genotype Trichinella T8 is closely related to T. britovi and has been detected only three times in sylvatic carnivores (lions and a spotted hyena) and only in South Africa and Namibia.

Genome assembly: T8_ISS272_r1.0

The genome of Trichinella sp. T8 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.
