About Caenorhabditis sinica
Caenorhabditis sinica belongs to the Elegans group in the genus Caenorhabditis, being phylogenetically close to C. briggsae although differing in reproductive mode. The gonochoristic C. sinica displays two significantly larger distal parts of uteri filled with sperms in the female/hermaphroditic gonad than does the androdioecious C. briggsae. C. sinica can be differentiated morphologically from all known Caenorhabditis species within the Elegans group by presenting a uniquely shaped, three-pointed hook structure on the male precloacal lip. C. sinica is found frequently in China.
Genome Assembly & Annotation
The genome was sequenced and assembled by Sujai Kumar and Mark Blaxter at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology, University of Edinburgh.
Preliminary gene models were provided by Erich Schwarz, Division of Biology, California Institute of Technology. Additional automatic annotations were done by WormBase.
