We are pleased to announce the fourth release of WormBase ParaSite. In this release, we have updated the data for the “core” parasitic and free-living nematodes to align with WormBase release WS250. This update also includes re-calculation of all comparative genomics data and an update of the BioMart data-mining tool.
We have aligned RNA-Seq data for Strongyloides stercoralis (PRJEB528) against the genome and made this available on the genome browser for this species.
Additionally, a new blog (wbparasite.wordpress.com) has been introduced where we will publish articles highlighting the features of WormBase ParaSite, interesting news stories and community meeting announcements.
In response to user feedback, the main homepage and search has been re-worked. An “intelligent” autocompleting search box has been introduced, located at the top right of all WormBase ParaSite Genome Browser pages.
As always, we welcome your feedback on all aspects of the website.
