Financial support for parasitic nematode EST sequencing at The Genome Institute at Washington University is provided by:
The Genome Institute (TGI) at Washington University in St. Louis has been awarded a grant through mid-2014 to study comparative genomics of Parasitic Nematodes. Making use of the large amount of cDNA and genomic data now available, this study aims to develop and use bioinformatic tools to process, assemble, and annotate incoming data, as well as focus on biochemical pathways conserved and/or taxonomically restricted including proteins that may prove useful as drug targets. Additionally this study will look at the nature and implications of nematode-specific insertions and deletions in proteins involved in environmental information processing and endocrine system.
The Genome Institute (TGI) at Washington University in St. Louis has been awarded a grant through the first quarter of 2015 to study the evolution of the nematode intestine, which is a key interface with the worm's host. Advanced bioinformatic approaches will be applied to delineate intestinal genes from all other available nematode genomes, emphasizing human pathogens that are too small to support direct analysis of intestinal functions. Intestinal protein families will be investigated to identify those that have undergone births or deaths and expansions or contractions throughout nematode evolution. Finally, we will determine functional categories of intestinal protein families that reflect adaptable traits of the highest importance in evolution of parasitism.
Scientists at The Genome Institute (TGI) at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have received a four-year, million National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to study the genetics of two groups of parasitic roundworms, ascaris and hookworm. - May 25, 2004.
