About Schmidtea mediterranea
The freshwater planarian Schmidtea mediterranea is commonly used as a model for regeneration and development of tissues, due to its ability to regenerate large portions of missing body parts.
There is 1 alternative genome project for Schmidtea mediterranea available in WormBase ParaSite: PRJNA12585
Genome Assembly & Annotation
The assembly was produced using long-read sequencing and a de novo assembler (MARVEL) enhanced for low-complexity reads, as described by Grohme et al. (2018).
