About Caenorhabditis quiockensis

Caenorhabditis quiockensis (formerly Caenorhabditis sp. 38) was formally described by Stevens et al. in 2019. Molecular data suggest its closest known relatives to be C. dolens, C. castelli and C. angaria. It reproduces through males and females. The species type isolate was collected from a rotting fruit in Guadeloupe in 2014.

Genome Assembly & Annotation


Short-insert Illumina reads were assembled using Velvet. 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.
