About Schistosoma bovis

The trematode Schistosoma bovis is a parasite of sheep, cattle and goats in North Africa, Mediterranean Europe and the Middle East. It exists in the same geographical areas as Schistosoma haematobium, with which it can hybridise. S. bovis-S. haematobium hybrids can infect humans, and have been reported in West African countries, namely Senegal, and during a 2013 outbreak on Corsica.

Genome Assembly & Annotation

Assembly

The assembly was created using a combination of Illumina reads and PacBio long reads, as described by Oey et al. (2019).

Annotation

The annotation was prepared using MAKER with a Schistosoma specific Augustus model, S. haematobium ESTs, and protein alignments of SwissProt entries from several fluke species and C. elegans.
