About Angiostrongylus cantonensis
The nematode Angiostrongylus cantonensis, or rat lungworm, is the most common cause of human eosinophilic meningitis. Humans are incidental hosts that become infected through ingestion of raw or undercooked infected rats (definitive host), snails, slugs, crabs, freshwater shrimps, or vegetables contaminated by slime from or parts of infected snails and slugs.
There is 1 alternative genome project for Angiostrongylus cantonensis available in WormBase ParaSite: PRJEB493
Genome Assembly & Annotation
This assembly of a laboratory strain of A. cantonensis from Guangzhou, China, was generated with Illumina and PacBio sequencing technologies by Sun Yat-Sen University, as described by Xu et al, 2019.
Protein-coding gene models were predicted by Sun Yat-Sen University using homology and RNAseq evidence, as described by Xu et al, 2019.
