Species Brugia malayi

Common Name: filariasis or elephantiasis
Clade: Clade III
Disease: Filarial worms infect over 100 million people in tropic regions (Wucheria bancrofti is more common than Brugia malayi). Worms, which are spread by mosquitos, reside in the human lymphatic system where they can block lymphatic drainage. Chronic infection can result in swelling and scarring of limbs and genitals.
Libraries: Library links
Sequencing: Majority by Filarial Genome Network including Williams Lab at Smith College, Northampton MA and Blaxter Lab at Edinburgh University. Small sequencing project by Washington University Nematode EST Project, The Genome Institute, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO. The complete genomic sequence for B. malayi was done by The Institute of Genomic Research (TIGR), funding by NIH-NIAID. Improved version of the genome and the annotation is available at WormBase (link)
