About Trichinella murrelli
One of the Trichinella genus of parasitic nematodes, the causative agents of trichinosis (also known as trichinellosis). Trichinella murrelli is found exclusively in the Nearctic and is considered to be the predominant species circulating among sylvatic hosts in temperate North America. Viable T. murrelli has been isolated from black bears, raccoons, red foxes, bob cats and coyotes.
Genome Assembly & Annotation
The genome of T. murrelli was produced by the Gasser laboratory at the University of Melbourne, as part of the assembly and analysis of all 12 recognized Trichinella species (described in Korhonen et al (2016)).
The gene predictions were made by the Gasser laboratory at the University of Melbourne.
