The genome of the social amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum
The social amoebae are exceptional in their ability to alternate between unicellular and multicellular forms. Here we describe the genome of the best-studied member of this group, DictyosteliumExpand

Sequence and analysis of chromosome 2 of Dictyostelium discoideum
The genome of the lower eukaryote Dictyostelium discoideum comprises six chromosomes. Here we report the sequence of the largest, chromosome 2, which at 8 megabases (Mb) represents about 25% of theExpand

Extensive proteolytic processing of the malaria parasite merozoite surface protein 7 during biosynthesis and parasite release from erythrocytes.
In Plasmodium falciparum, merozoite surface protein 7 (MSP7) was originally identified as a 22kDa protein on the merozoite surface and associated with the MSP1 complex shed during erythrocyteExpand

The 22 kDa component of the protein complex on the surface of Plasmodium falciparum merozoites is derived from a larger precursor, merozoite surface protein 7.
The gene coding for merozoite surface protein 7 has been identified and sequenced in three lines of Plasmodium falciparum. The gene encodes a 351 amino acid polypeptide that is the precursor of aExpand

A metagenomic snapshot of taxonomic and functional diversity in an alpine glacier cryoconite ecosystem
Cryoconite is a microbe‐mineral aggregate which darkens the ice surface of glaciers. Microbial process and marker gene PCR-dependent measurements reveal active and diverse cryoconite microbialExpand

Evolutionary genomics of anthroponosis in Cryptosporidium
Human cryptosporidiosis is the leading protozoan cause of diarrhoeal mortality worldwide, and a preponderance of infections is caused by Cryptosporidium hominis and C. parvum. Both species consist ofExpand

Characterization of N-myristoyltransferase from Plasmodium falciparum.
The gene coding for myristoyl-CoA:protein N-myristoyltransferase (NMT) has been cloned from the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. The gene appears to be single copy and mRNA is expressed inExpand

Identifying and Resolving Genome Misassembly Issues Important for Biomarker Discovery in the Protozoan Parasite, Cryptosporidium
TLDR
Cryptosporidium is a protozoan parasite that causes a diarrhoeal disease in humans, and which may be spread by swimming pools or infected municipal water supplies. Expand
