About Trichobilharzia regenti

The trematode Trichobilharzia regenti is a nasal parasite of European birds with freshwater snails of the family Lymnaeidae, Physidae, Planorbidae and Pleuroceridae as intermediate hosts. Infection causes cercarial dermatitis in humans.

Genome Assembly & Annotation


This annotated genome assembly was produced as part of the doctoral thesis of Duncan Berger: [Berger, D. (2021). Comparative and population genomic analyses of the parasitic blood flukes (Doctoral thesis)](https://doi.org/10.17863/CAM.86667).

The assembly was generated from PacBio long-read sequencing data and scaffolded using Hi-C.

The source material for genome sequencing was a pool of single-miracidium derived cercariae, from the Czech Republic in 2014, provided by Roman Leontovyč and Petr Horák from Charles University, Prague.


Gene finding employed a customized pipeline that integrated RNA-Seq, Iso-Seq and homology data. Berger, D. (2021). Comparative and population genomic analyses of the parasitic blood flukes (Doctoral thesis).
