WormBase’s partner site, WormBase ParaSite, is a portal for parasitic helminth genomes providing rapid access to the genome sequences, annotation and comparative genomics of around one hundred parasitic species.
WormBase ParaSite is a collaboration between the Wellcome Sanger Institute and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory – European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI). It uses Ensembl technology to store and provide access to genomic data, but is also closely integrated with and complementary to the main WormBase resource. WormBase ParaSite is funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC).
