About Ascaris suum

The nematode Ascaris suum is the large roundworm parasite of pigs and the causative agent of ascariasis. It is closely related to A. lumbricoides, the human large roundworm parasite, one of the most common human parasitic infections in the world. Cross infections of A. suum to humans and A. lumbricoides to pigs has been reported.

There is 1 alternative genome project for Ascaris suum available in WormBase ParaSite: PRJNA80881

Genome Assembly & Annotation


The A. suum genome has been sequenced by the Davis laboratory at the University of Colorado as described by Wang et al. (2017) . The version presented here is an assembly update, superseding one described in Wang et al. (2012)


The gene predictions were made by the Davis laboratory at the University of Colorado based on the output of TransDecoder . A correction was submitted by authors in 2018 for the release 11 of WormBase ParaSite.
