About Trichuris trichiura

The nematode Trichuris trichiura, or human whipworm, is an intestinal parasite of humans currently thought to infect up to 1 billion people worldwide resulting in considerable morbidity.

Genome assembly: TTRE2.1

The T. trichiura genome has been sequenced by the Parasite Genomics group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, in collaboration with Richard Grencis (University of Manchester), as described by Foth et al (2014). The assembly version represented here is INSDC assembly TTRE2.1.

Gene annotation

The gene predictions were made by the Parasite Genomics group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, as described by Foth et al (2014).

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.
