About Teladorsagia circumcincta

The nematode Teladorsagia circumcinta (also known as Ostertagia circumcincta), or brown stomach worm, is economically the most important parasite of sheep throughout temperate regions of the world and has developed multiple resistances to drugs. Globally, these parasites lead to millions of dollars in economic losses due to low production of meat, wool and milk and the high costs of treatment.

Genome Assembly & Annotation

Assembly

The genome assembly was produced by the Mitreva laboratory at the Genome Institute of Washington University, and submitted in late 2013 as part of the 50 Helminth Genomes project. The assembly presented here is similar, but not exactly equivalent to, the NCBI assembly GCA_002352805.1, containing 5 additional scaffolds.

Annotation

The gene predictions were made by the Mitreva laboratory at the Genome Institute of Washington University, and submitted in late 2013 as part of the 50 Helminth Genomes project.
