Announcing WormBase ParaSite release 8

We are pleased to announce the eighth release of WormBase ParaSite.

We now have a total of 131 genomes representing 112 species. New species in this release are Globodera rostochiensis (PRJEB13504) and Gyrodactylus salaris (PRJNA244375). A new higher-quality assembly is also available for Heligmosomoides polygyrus (PRJEB15396).

Our assembly quality widgets has been updated with new BUSCO scores. We have used BUSCO v2 and either the lineage Nematoda (for nematodes) or Metazoa (for platyhelminthes) to calculate more accurate scores.
