Folsomia candida str. VU population (ASM221717v1)

Folsomia candida str. VU population Assembly and Gene Annotation

Despite the great ecological relevance of the soil community, insight into molecular processes underlying the ecology and evolution of soil invertebrates is largely unknown. Folsomia candida is an accepted international standard for soil quality assessment. An internationally standardized soil toxicity test has been developed for this species and further details can be obtained from the genome portal ( at the Department of Ecological Science, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
