posted 8 months 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!


On identifiers from external databases and past releases
