About Necator americanus
The nematode Necator americanus, or human hookworm, lives in the intestines and is particularly harmful to children, causing chronic anemia, stunting growth and impairing intellectual development. N. americanus is the most prevalent species of human parasite and therefore most important from a public health standpoint.
Genome Assembly & Annotation
The N. americanus genome was sequenced by the Mitreva laboratory at the Genome Institute of Washington University, as described by Tang et al (2014).
The gene predictions were made by the Mitreva laboratory at the Genome Institute of Washington University, as described by Tang et al (2014). The version represented here is consistent with the INSDC records.
