Alternative gene set for Necator americanus

posted 19 days ago by Faye Rodgers

Logan et al. (2020) have published an alternative set of gene predictions for Necator americanus in PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases, based on both RNA-seq and proteomics data and generated via the MAKER pipeline. Their gene predictions can be downloaded from the WormBase ParaSite FTP site at:ftp://ftp.ebi.ac.uk/pub/databases/wormbase/parasite/datasets/logan_2020_32453752 Thanks to Javier Sotillo Gallego for providing the data!

Brugia pahangi material available

posted 9 months ago by Faye Rodgers

The Devaney group have small numbers of adult B. pahangi and larger numbers of Mf available to others for research purposes.  If this would be useful, please contact eileen.devaney@glasgow.ac.uk with approximate numbers, life stage required and whether fresh or frozen material is suitable. The B. pahangi life cycle is funded by a grant from the [read more]


On identifiers from external databases and past releases

posted 2 years ago by Wojtek Bazant

(updated in WBPS13 to reflect archiving functionality and mention gene IDs in GFF dumps) As sequencing projects progress and yield improved data, we occasionally update genomes on the site to provide the best resources available. An example of this is Schistosoma mansoni, released in WBPS11. The authors of the new S. mansoni annotation preserved identifiers [read more]

Genomes we don’t have in WormBase ParaSite

posted 2 years ago by Wojtek Bazant

The work on the version 11 of WormBase ParaSite is ongoing! We now have a list of assemblies of new species, and improved genomes of existing species, that we plan to publish. As well as including data submitted to us directly, we also surveyed the archives and have made an effort to include all assemblies [read more]
