Phylogenies inferred from mitochondrial gene orders-a cautionary tale from the parasitic flatworms.
[Extract] Mitochondrial genomes have been used in numerous studies to investigate phylogenetic relationships among eukaryotes at many levels (e.g., Smith et al. 1993; Boore et al. 1995; Boore,Expand

A multiplex PCR for unequivocal differentiation of all encapsulated and non-encapsulated genotypes of Trichinella.
We have developed a single PCR test for the simple and unequivocal differentiation of all currently recognised genotypes of Trichilnella. Partial DNA sequence data were generated from internalExpand

The draft genome of the parasitic nematode Trichinella spiralis
Genome evolution studies for the phylum Nematoda have been limited by focusing on comparisons involving Caenorhabditis elegans. We report a draft genome sequence of Trichinella spiralis, a food-borneExpand

Recent advances on the taxonomy, systematics and epidemiology of Trichinella.
Since Owen first described Trichinella as a human pathogen in 1835, the number of organisms comprising this genus has grown dramatically. Where it was once thought to be a monospecific group, thisExpand

Cryptosporidium parvum infection in bovine neonates: dynamic clinical, parasitic and immunologic patterns.
Twenty-six experimentally infected calves were monitored daily for oocyst excretion. All began excreting oocysts 3-6 days p.i. Most calves (n = 23) excreted oocysts for 6-9 days, with a daily rangeExpand

Real-time PCR for quantifying Haemonchus contortus eggs and potential limiting factors
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the practicality of using real-time PCR for quantifying feces-derived trichostrongyle eggs. Haemonchus contortus eggs were used to evaluate fecalExpand

Developments and hurdles in generating vaccines for controlling helminth parasites of grazing ruminants.
As a direct consequence of rising drug resistance among common nematodes of grazing animals, efforts toward state-of-the-art vaccine development have clearly intensified in recent years, fuelledExpand

Post-Miocene expansion, colonization, and host switching drove speciation among extant nematodes of the archaic genus Trichinella.
Parasitic nematodes of the genus Trichinella cause significant food-borne illness and occupy a unique evolutionary position at the base of the phylum Nematoda, unlike the free-living nematodeExpand

The systematics of the genus Trichinella with a key to species.
The authors review the major biological, biochemical, and molecular characters that are used to distinguish the seven Trichinella species (T. spiralis, T. nativa, T. britovi, T. pseudospiralis, T.Expand

Molecular taxonomy, phylogeny and biogeography of nematodes belonging to the Trichinella genus.
Studying parasites of the genus Trichinella provides scientists of today many advantages. This is a group of zoonotic nematodes that circulates freely among wildlife hosts with one in particular,Expand
