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: PRJNA231479
Genome Assembly & Annotation
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 project.
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. The annotation was then updated by GIWU by incorporating PacBio cDNA data (available from release 12), and later by WormBase ParaSite (release 15) to incorporate missing gene models: here we present a version retrieved in January 2020 from http://nematode.net.
