About Trichuris suis
The nematode Trichuris suis, or whipworm, is a parasite of pigs that is found worldwide, but is most prevalent in warm, humid climates. Critical infestations of T. suis may cause acute morbidity and mortality in young female pigs. T. suis has been shown in trials to colonize humans briefly without triggering infections.
Genome Assembly & Annotation
The genome assembly was produced by the Mitreva laboratory at the Genome Institute of Washington University, and submitted in late 2013 as part of the 50 Helminth Genomes project.
