Nematode.net (www.nematode.net) is a web- accessible resource for investigating gene sequences from nematode genomes. The database is an outgrowth of the parasitic nematode EST project at Washington University's Genome Sequencing Center (GSC), St Louis. A sister project at the University of Edinburgh and the Sanger Institute is also underway. More than 295,000 ESTs have been generated from >30 nematodes other than Caenorhabditis elegans including key parasites of humans, animals and plants…

Nematode.net update 2008: improvements enabling more efficient data mining and comparative nematode genomics
TLDR
Nematode.net was implemented to offer user-friendly access to data produced by this project and is the dissemination of this diverse collection of information to the broader scientific community in a way that is useful, consistent, centralized and enduring.
NemaPath: online exploration of KEGG-based metabolic pathways for nematodes
TLDR
The NemaPath pathway server is presented, a web-based pathway-level visualization tool for navigating putative metabolic pathways for over 30 nematode species, including 27 parasites.
Computational analysis of proteomes from parasitic nematodes
TLDR
The work to identify sequences and sequence features that have patterns of interest to nematode biology are described, include proteins that are unique to parasitic feeding strategy, and protein domains that have been lost in certain nematodes lineages.
Nematode gene sequences: update for december 2003.
TLDR
The molecular characterization of parasitic nematodes and development of novel control strategies can benefit from genomic approaches, and their availability in public databases will facilitate broad characterization of their function.
Explorer NEMBASE 4 : the nematode transcriptome resource
TLDR
The utility of NEMBASE4 is used to examine the uniqueness of the transcriptomes of major clades of parasitic nematodes, identifying lineage-restricted genes that may underpin particular parasitic phenotypes, possible viral pathogens of nem atodes, and nematode-unique protein families that may be developed as drug targets.
NEMBASE4: the nematode transcriptome resource.
A Multi-Omics Database for Parasitic Nematodes and Trematodes.
TLDR
This chapter describes the website, the available tools and some of the new features of Nematode.net, a web-based resource that was launched in 2000 to host and investigate gene sequences from nematode genomes and is now the moniker for a collection of databases.
Nematode gene sequences: update for december 2005.
TLDR
The availability of sequences from nematodes as of late 2005 is reported on and literature from 2003–2005 is primarily cited, with a thorough listing of the prior literature.
C. elegans as a Resource for Studies on Plant Parasitic Nematodes
TLDR
Application of RNAi in plant-parasitic nematodes has enhanced gene functional analysis as well as highlighted the potential for its development as a transgenic control.

WormBase: a cross-species database for comparative genomics
TLDR
The past two years have seen a significant expansion in the biological scope of WormBase, including the integration of large-scale, genome-wide data sets, the inclusion of genome sequence and gene predictions from related species and active literature curation.
A molecular evolutionary framework for the phylum Nematoda
TLDR
It is suggested that animal parasitism arose independently at least four times, and plant parasitism three times, which indicates that convergent morphological evolution may be extensive and that present higher-level classification of the Nematoda will need revision.
Analysis and functional classification of transcripts from the nematode Meloidogyne incognita
TLDR
With sequencing from plant parasitic nematodes accelerating, the approaches to transcript characterization described here can be applied to more extensive datasets and also provide a foundation for more complex genome analyses.
Systematic functional analysis of the Caenorhabditis elegans genome using RNAi
TLDR
It is found that genes of similar functions are clustered in distinct, multi-megabase regions of individual chromosomes; genes in these regions tend to share transcriptional profiles.
The KEGG database.
TLDR
The current status of KEGG is reviewed and new developments in graph representation and graph computations are reported on.
Cofactor-independent Phosphoglycerate Mutase Has an Essential Role in Caenorhabditis elegans and Is Conserved in Parasitic Nematodes*
TLDR
It is demonstrated that nematodes, unlike vertebrates, utilize independent phosphoglycerate mutase in glycolytic and gluconeogenic pathways and that the enzyme is probably essential for all nematode.
The InterPro Database, 2003 brings increased coverage and new features
TLDR
The latest release of InterPro contains 5629 entries describing 4280 families, 1239 domains, 95 repeats and 15 post-translational modifications, an increase of nearly 15% since the inception of Inter pro.
The Distributed Annotation System
TLDR
The Distributed Annotation System (DAS) allows sequence annotations to be decentralized among multiple third-party annotators and integrated on an as-needed basis by client-side software.
