The Bge3 genome differs from the B. glabrata BB02 reference genome in both sequence and structure, and these are likely to have significant biological effects. The sequencing of the genome of B. glabrata itself is still in progress, despite being identified as a priority target for genomic sequencing as early as 2004 [45], although preliminary data is now re- [29] Biomphalaria glabrata can also survive up to 16 hours in anaerobic water using lactic acid fermentation. © EMBL-EBI The Biomphalaria glabrata data and its display on Ensembl Genomes are made possible through a joint effort by the Ensembl Genomes group and VectorBase, a component of VEuPathDB.
