By the end of February 2008, the Parasitic Nematode Project conducted by The Genome Institute (TGI) at Washington University School of Medicine (St. Louis, Missouri, USA) has submitted ~530,000 ESTs from 40 nematode species and ~540,000 GSSs from 2 nematode species.

By September of 2011, an additional ~11.4 million reads of RNAseq (454) have been sequenced. The breakdown per organism is shown below.

As of October 2014, we've produced ~14 billion reads worth of Illumina RNAseq data. Counts per species shown below.
