About Trichobilharzia regenti

The trematode Trichobilharzia regenti is a nasal parasite of European birds with freshwater snails of the family Lymnaeidae, Physidae, Planorbidae and Pleuroceridae as intermediate hosts. Infection causes cercarial dermatitis in humans.

Genome assembly: T_regenti_v1_0_4

The draft genome assembly was produced by the Parasite Genomic group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, in collaboration with Petr Horak (Charles University, Czech Republic), using Illumina paired-end sequencing followed by an in-house genome assembly pipeline comprising various steps, including contig assembly, scaffolding, gap-filling and error-correction (Helminth Genomes Consortium, unpublished).

Gene annotation

The gene predictions were made by the Parasite Genomics group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and WormBase, as part of the 50 Helminth Genomes Initiative (Helminth Genomes Consortium, unpublished). An in-house pipeline was developed that used MAKER to generate high-quality annotations by integrating evidence from multiple sources: ab initio gene predictions from AUGUSTUS, GeneMark-ES, and SNAP; projected annotation from C. elegans (using GenBlastG) and the taxonomically nearest reference helminth genome (using RATT); and ESTs, mRNAs and proteins from related organisms aligned to the genome using BLAST, with refinement of alignments using Exonerate.

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.
