About Trichuris suis

The nematode Trichuris suis, or whipworm, is a parasite of pigs that is found worldwide, but is most prevalent in warm, humid climates. Critical infestations of T. suis may cause acute morbidity and mortality in young female pigs. T. suis has been shown in trials to colonize humans briefly without triggering infections.

There are 2 alternative genome projects for Trichuris suis available in WormBase ParaSite: PRJNA208415 PRJNA208416

Genome assembly: T_suis_1.0.allpaths

The genome assembly was produced by the Mitreva laboratory at the Genome Institute of Washington University, and submitted in late 2013 as part of the 50 Helminth Genomes Initiative (Helminth Genomes Consortium, unpublished).

Gene annotation

The gene predictions were made by the Mitreva laboratory at the Genome Institute of Washington University, and submitted in late 2013 as part of the 50 Helminth Genomes project (Helminth Genomes Consortium, unpublished).

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.
