About Caenorhabditis parvicauda

Caenorhabditis parvicauda (formerly Caenorhabditis sp. 21) was formally described by Stevens et al. in 2019. It reproduces through males and females. C. parvicauda is notable for unusual morphological novelty compared with other known members of the genus. The species type isolate was collected from a rotting fruit collected on the island of Sainte-Marie, Madagascar in 2010.

Genome Assembly & Annotation


Short-insert Illumina reads were assembled using Platanus. The resulting contigs were scaffolded with Trinity-assembled transcripts using SCUBAT2. The assembly is described in full in Stevens et al., 2019.


The annotation presented here corresponds to the v1 annotation retrieved from caenorhabditis.org in March 2020. Gene models were predicted using BRAKER, guided by RNAseq, as described in Stevens et al., 2019.
