A general classification of New World Leishmania using numerical zymotaxonomy.
More than 250 strains of Leishmania isolated from different localities and hosts in the New World were analyzed by enzyme electrophoresis, and their electromorphic profiles were compared with 19Expand

Intergenic region typing (IRT): a rapid molecular approach to the characterization and evolution of Leishmania.
In the New World, Leishmania of the Viannia subgenus cause both cutaneous and mucocutaneous disease. These parasites show considerable intra-species genetic diversity and variation, which complicatesExpand
