About Acrobeloides nanus

The nematode Acrobeloides nanus is a cosmopolitan, bacteria-feeding organism widespread in agricultural and arid soils throughout Australia. It is studied in the context of gene regulation during embryonic development.

Genome Assembly & Annotation


The genome was sequenced on the Illumina GaIIx and HiSeq platforms at the University College London, as described by Schiffer et al. (2018).


The annotation was produced using AUGUSTUS incorporating de novo predictions with C. elegans as species profile and RNASeq data, as described by Schiffer et al. (2018). It was submitted to WormBase by Philipp Schiffer in August 2018.
