The recent construction of a genus-one helicoid verified the existence of a second example of a complete, embedded minimal surface with finite topology and infinite total curvature in $\mathbb{R}3$. We determine the conformal structure and asymptotic Weierstrass data of all surfaces with these properties. Using this structure and the asymptotics, in the case $g=1$ we establish the existence of an orientation preserving isometry. This is joint work with Jacob Bernstein
