We are pleased to announce the sixth release of WormBase ParaSite.
In this release we have a total of 109 genomes representing 100 species, with the addition of one new species: the free-living flatworm Macrostomum lignano (PRJNA284736)
We are also pleased to announce that a new, high-quality assembly for Brugia malayi is now available in WormBase and WormBase ParaSite – see our blog post for more details.
Predicted ncRNAs are now shown on genome browser for all species (example) and published RNA-Seq alignments have been added for Schistosoma mansoni (PRJEA36577).
Finally, we now provide a comparative genomics summary statistics page.
