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: PRJNA179528 PRJNA208416

Genome Assembly & Annotation

Assembly

The genome of a male T. suis isolate (strain DCEP-RM93M) was sequenced by the Gasser laboratory at the University of Melbourne, as described by Jex et al (2014). The assembly version represented here was submitted directly to WormBase in early 2014.

Annotation

The gene predictions were made by the Gasser laboratory at the University of Melbourne, as described by Jex et al (2014). The gene set represented here is that submitted directly to WormBase in early 2014.
