2012-02-03: The C. species 9 assembly in WormBase WS226-WS230 has some contamination by C. species 7. Since species 9 has mostly species 9 genes and some species 7 genes, there is actually added value to having it, as long as people know of the potential problem with "apparent paralogs" that are actually sp. 7 genes.
