About Oscheius tipulae
Oscheius tipulae is a free-living androdioecious species of nematode, characterized by the coexistence of males and hermaphrodites. It is used as a satellite developmental genetic model organism to study vulva formation.

Genome Assembly & Annotation
The genome of O. tipulae was assembled by Georgios Koutsovolous and Fabrice Besnard from the Blaxter Lab in University of Edinburgh, using a combination of short-read and mate-pair data, as described in Besnard et al. (2017).
The genome was annotated using MAKER2 and Augustus, as described in Besnard et al. (2017).
