About Caenorhabditis uteleia

Caenorhabditis uteleia (formerly Caenorhabditis sp. 31) was formally described by Stevens et al. in 2019. C. uteleia is notable for unusual morphological novelty compared with other known members of the genus. It reproduces through males and females. The species type isolate was collected from a rotting fruit in Madre de Dios, Peru, in 2013.

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.
