Helminth.net (www.helminth.net) is a web-based resource that was launched in 2000 as simply “ Nematode.net ” to host and investigate gene sequences from nematode genomes. Over the years it has evolved to become the moniker for a collection of databases: Nematode.net and Trematode.net. These databases host information for 73 nematode (roundworms) and 17 trematode (flatworms) species and serve as backbone for a number of tools that allow users to query slices of the data for multifactorial combinations of species-omics properties. Recent focus has been on inclusion of gene and protein expression data, population genomics and cross-kingdom interactions (metagenomics datasets). This chapter describes the website, the available tools and some of the new features.
