Genome Assembly & Annotation
This genome 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, ISS470, had a black vulture from the United States as its original host.
The gene predictions were made by the Gasser laboratory at the University of Melbourne.
