There is 1 alternative genome project for Hymenolepis diminuta available in WormBase ParaSite: PRJEB507

Genome Assembly & Annotation


Contigs were generated from paired-end and mate-pair libraries and scaffolded with long Oxford Nanopore reads using LINKS and danaasm-link, as described by Nowak et al., 2019.


Gene models were predicted using BRAKER2 and MAKER2, guided by RNAseq data, as described by Nowak et al., 2019
