We’re looking forward to presenting a workshop at the upcoming BSP Spring meeting in Aberystwyth. To help us prepare, we’d love to know what our users would find most useful for us to cover. Please fill in our quick survey (one question only!): https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/8LYF2YW
Tapeworms of the Echinococcus granulosus sensu lato species complex cause the zoonotic disease echinococcosis. Maldonado et al, from the Kamenetzky group at the University of Buenos Aires, have recently reported the genome assembly and annotation of one of the members of this species complex, Echinococcus canadensis (G7 genotype). The genome paper additionally describes a number of comparative analyses between E. canadensis (G7), E. canadensis (G1) and E. multilocularis, based on gene orthology, genome-wide SNP analyses and identification of regulatory features.
Version 1 of the E. canadensis (G7) genome is currently available in WormBase ParaSite, with version 2 becoming available in release 10.
