Genome Assembly & Annotation

Assembly

Nanopore long reads were assembled using Flye v2.7.1. After base correction by two rounds of Pilon v1.23 with the Illumina paired-end reads, the assembly was further scaffolded using the 3D-DNA pipeline, as described by Dayi et al., 2020.

Annotation

The gene set presented here was submitted to WormBase ParaSite by the authors (see Dayi et al., 2020).
