Helminth.net: expansions to Nematode.net and an introduction to Trematode.net.
Bottom Line: Trematode.net is an independent component of Helminth.net and currently hosts data from 16 species, with information ranging from genomic, functional genomic data, enzymatic pathway utilization to microbiome changes associated with helminth infections.The databases' interface, with a sophisticated query engine as a backbone, is intended to allow users to search for multi-factorial combinations of species' omics properties.This report describes updates to Nematode.net since its last description in NAR, 2012, and also introduces and presents its new sibling site, Trematode.net.

Mentions: Trematode.net was recently developed to provide omics data dissemination, from an initiative to study the genomes of the etiological agents of FBTs, with a primary goal of studying trematode (fluke) genome-wide gene and protein annotations online via GBrowse (36). However, Trematode.net now also provides numerous additional services and tools to serve the Trematode research community (Supplementary Information S1, Figure 2), and currently houses information for 16 trematode species. Our overall design priority was to make Trematode.net mirror Nematode.net as much as possible (both in terms of layout and functionality) to create a seamless user experience across Helminth.net. The navigation menu interfaces for Nematode.net (Figure 3A) and Trematode.net (Figure 3B) link to each other, and are organized in a similar fashion, providing one-click access to interactive tools used to mine hosted data (Figure 3C).
