About Ancylostoma ceylanicum

The nematode Ancylostoma ceylanicum, or mammalian hookworm, is a parasite that attaches to the intestine of animals - particularly humans and hamsters - causing anaemia in the host. It is a good model for studying human hookworms.

There is 1 alternative genome project for Ancylostoma ceylanicum available in WormBase ParaSite: PRJNA72583

Genome Assembly & Annotation


The genome was sequenced by collaborating groups at the California Institute of Technology, Cornell University and the University of Massachusetts Medical School, as described by Schwarz et al (2015).


This set of gene annotations has been generated as part of a combined RNA-seq and excreted/secreted (ES) protein analysis carried out by Prof. Erich Schwarz at Cornell University in collaboration with Prof. Raffi Aroian at UMass Chan Medical School. This is a direct replacement of older gene predictions generated by Cornell University, described by Schwarz et al (2015).
