About Panagrolaimus sp. 1159

Panagrolaimus PS1159 is a free-living, parthenogenetic nematode. Like other members of the Panagrolaimus genus, it has enhanced ability to survive dessication stress.

Genome Assembly & Annotation


Short-insert Illumina reads were assembled with Velvet. Contigs were scaffolded with RNAseq-derived mRNA predictions using the SCUBAT pipeline, as described by Schiffer et al., 2019.


Gene models were predicted with Augustus, as described by Schiffer et al., 2019.
