About Strongyloides papillosus

The nematode Strongyloides papillosus, or threadworm, is a minute gastro-intestinal parasite found in cows, pigs, sheep, goats, rabbits, and rats.

Genome Assembly & Annotation


The draft genome assembly was produced by the Parasite Genomic group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, in collaboration with Adrian Streit (Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology) as part of the 50 Helminth Genomes project, followed by some bespoke manual improvement, including the use of genetic markers described by Nemetschke et al, 2010 (WTSI Strongyloididae Nematode Genomes Project, Hunt et al. (2016)).


The gene predictions were made by the Parasite Genomics group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute as part of the Strongyloididae Nematode Genomes Project, Hunt et al. (2016). An in-house automatic pipeline (based around AUGUSTUS plus MAKER) was used to generate first-pass gene models, and this was followed by a round of targeted manual curation of selected gene families.
