ERP001350: Onchocerca volvulus transcriptomics

Wellcome Sanger Institute

Onchocerca volvulus is a filarial nematode parasite of humans, causing Onchocerciasis, or River Blindness, which affects over 37 million people, mainly in Africa. It is a severely debilitating disease, which is transmitted to humans by black fly. This project aims to undertake high-throughput sequencing of Onchocerca volvulus transcriptome for de novo assembly of transcripts. The main objective of this project is to recognize genes expressed in given life stages.

These studies are available in ENA, and the reads successfully align to our genomes.
We have decided not to include them in our analysis.
Either they failed to meet minimal criteria for inclusion, we've been asked to exclude them for data quality reasons, or we were unable to interpret the metadata.
