About Caenorhabditis sulstoni

Caenorhabditis sulstoni (formerly Caenorhabditis sp. 32) was formally described by Stevens et al. in 2019. It is a member of the Japonica group in the Caenorhabditis genus; molecular data suggest its closest known relative to be C. afra. It reproduces through males and females. The species type isolate was collected from the faeces of an East African millipede (Archispirostreptus gigas) bought in spring 2013 at an insect market in Berlin. The species is named in honour of John Sulston, for his work on the C. elegans cell lineage and genome sequence.

Genome Assembly & Annotation

Assembly

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.

Annotation

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.
