About Mesorhabditis spiculigera

Mesorhabditis spiculigera is a free-living nematode that is widely distributed throughout the world and exhibits great potential for recycling of organic matter.

Genome Assembly & Annotation


This genome was submitted to ENA on July 6, 2023 by LBMC UMR5239 and has been imported from there. Mixed M. spiculigera developmental stages have been pooled and sequenced using both short- (Illumina HiSeq 4000) and long-read sequencing technology. The reads were polished and assembled using Canu, Flye, Quickmerge, Pilon and Medaka.


The annotation was submitted to GenBank on July 6, 2023 by LBMC UMR5239 and has been imported from there.
