The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and the Genome Sequencing Center at Washington University completed the sequencing of the Caenorhabditis elegans genome. This was the first multicellular eukaryotic genome to be completed: Science, 1998.

The 100 Mb genome is organized in six chromosomes and annotation represents more than 20,000 genes. The gene, transcript, and protein annotation is provided by WormBase and NCBI provides ab initio model predictions and calculates alignments to provide the C. elegans UniGene (Cel_UniG) and transcript (Cel_EST) maps.

A majority of the protein coding genes are supported by expression data, and more than half of the annotated proteins have significant matches to organisms outside pseudocoelomates.
