A combined microscopic-molecular method for the diagnosis of strongylid infections in sheep.
We evaluated a combined microscopic-molecular approach for the diagnosis of key strongylid infections in sheep using panels of well-defined control and test samples. The method established is basedExpand
Ascaris suum draft genome
Parasitic diseases have a devastating, long-term impact on human health, welfare and food production worldwide. More than two billion people are infected with geohelminths, including the roundwormsExpand
Unlocking the Transcriptomes of Two Carcinogenic Parasites, Clonorchis sinensis and Opisthorchis viverrini
The two parasitic trematodes, Clonorchis sinensis and Opisthorchis viverrini, have a major impact on the health of tens of millions of humans throughout Asia. The greatest impact is through theExpand
The genome and developmental transcriptome of the strongylid nematode Haemonchus contortus
BackgroundThe barber's pole worm, Haemonchus contortus, is one of the most economically important parasites of small ruminants worldwide. Although this parasite can be controlled using anthelminticExpand
Cryptosporidium--biotechnological advances in the detection, diagnosis and analysis of genetic variation.
Cryptosporidiosis is predominantly a gastrointestinal disease of humans and other animals, caused by various species of protozoan parasites representing the genus Cryptosporidium. This disease,Expand
A first insight into the genotypes of Echinococcus granulosus from humans in Mongolia.
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based single-strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP) and targeted sequencing were employed to genetically classify Echinococcus granulosus cysts from humans from 12Expand
Whole-genome sequence of Schistosoma haematobium
Schistosomiasis is a neglected tropical disease caused by blood flukes (genus Schistosoma; schistosomes) and affecting 200 million people worldwide. No vaccines are available, and treatment relies onExpand
Cytochrome P450 genes from Helicoverpa armigera: expression in a pyrethroid-susceptible and -resistant strain.
The molecular basis of metabolic resistance to pyrethroids in Helicoverpa armigera is currently under debate. Substantial indirect evidence supports a role for both esterase- andExpand
Classification of Cryptosporidium Species from Patients with Sporadic Cryptosporidiosis by Use of Sequence-Based Multilocus Analysis following Mutation Scanning
ABSTRACT In the present study, we analyzed genetic variation in Cryptosporidium species from humans (n = 62) with clinical cryptosporidiosis in South Australia. Sequence variation was assessed inExpand
Bovine theileriosis--an emerging problem in south-eastern Australia?
Bovine theileriosis is an arthropod-borne disease caused by one or more haemoprotozoan parasites of the genus Theileria. Traditionally, Theileria infection in cattle in Australia was largelyExpand
