One of the Trichinella genus of parasitic nematodes, the causative agents of trichinosis (also known as trichinellosis). Trichinella patagoniensis is a species which encapsulates in host muscle tissue. It is found to infect carnivorous mammals, such as cougars, in South America.

Genome Assembly & Annotation


The genome of T. patagoniensis 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.
