About Caenorhabditis inopinata
Caenorhabditis inopinata (sp. 34) is a free-living, transparent nematode, isolated from fresh syconia of the fig Ficus septica in Ishigaki island, Japan. It is among the closest known relatives of C. elegans, while also displaying a number of characteristic differences related to the timing of developmental milestones and body size. This has created interest in the species as a system of study of evolutionary diversification.
Genome Assembly & Annotation
Gene structures in the Augustus predictions were refined by manual curation in Artemis, using RNA-seq mapping results and BLAST results against C. elegans proteins. The result was then submitted to WormBase by Taisei Kikuchi in June 2018.
