The Entamoeba histolytica HM-1:IMSS whole genome shotgun (WGS) project has the project accession AAFB00000000. This version of the project (02) has the accession number AAFB02000000, and consists of sequences AAFB02000001-AAFB02002173.

This version of the project (02) consists of a new assembly of the original sequences produced by TIGR and the Sanger Centre as part of the Entamoeba histolytica Genome Project. This version is an improved genome assembly that is being annotated at TIGR. Information about the original version published by Loftus et al. is available at TIGR ( and the Sanger Centre ( Contig AAFB02001677 was removed because it may contain contamination. Annotated scaffolds were added in March 2008. Proteins were tracked from the contigs of the 01 version of the project to the scaffolds of the 02 version. This version of the project, JCVI-ESG2-1.0, represents 8x coverage of the genome.
