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

Assembly

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.

Annotation

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. It was then updated by GIWU by incorporating PacBio cDNA data. Here we present a version retrieved in 2018 from http://nematode.net.
