About Trichinella pseudospiralis

One of the Trichinella genus of parasitic nematodes, the causative agents of trichinosis (also known as trichinellosis). Trichinella pseudospiralis is a species which does not encapsulate in host muscle tissue and infects mammals and birds worldwide.

There are 4 alternative strains from this genome project for Trichinella pseudospiralis available in WormBase ParaSite: ISS13 ISS141 ISS470 ISS588

Genome Assembly & Annotation


This genome of T. pseudospiralis 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)). This strain, ISS176, had a tawny eagle from Kazakhstan as its original host.


The gene predictions were made by the Gasser laboratory at the University of Melbourne.
