About Parascaris univalens

The nematode Parascaris univalens is an ubiquitous parasite infecting young horses. It is morphologically identical to, and has in the past been confused with, its sister species Parascaris equorum.

Genome Assembly & Annotation


The assembly was produced by the Davis laboratory at the University of Colorado , as described by Wang et al. (2017)


The gene predictions were made by the Davis laboratory at the University of Colorado based on the output of TransDecoder . A correction was submitted by authors in 2018 for the release 11 of WormBase ParaSite.
