Genome Assembly & Annotation


This annotated genome assembly has been published.

The assembly was generated from PacBio long-read sequencing data and scaffolded using Hi-C.

The source material for genome sequencing was 20 adult male worms, originally obtained from Senegal in 1993, archived as part of the SCAN collection at the Natural History Museum, London, and provided by Fiona Allan, Aidan Emery and Muriel Rabone. Additional worms from the same collection were used for gene finding.


Gene finding employed a customized pipeline that integrated RNA-Seq, Iso-Seq and homology data.
