From mouse to moose: multilocus genotyping of Giardia isolates from various animal species.
Giardia intestinalis is a protozoan parasite that consists of seven genetically distinct assemblages (A to G). Assemblage A and B parasites have been detected in a wide range of animals includingExpand

Redescription of Neospora caninum and its differentiation from related coccidia.
Neospora caninum is a protozoan parasite of animals, which before 1984 was misidentified as Toxoplasma gondii. Infection by this parasite is a major cause of abortion in cattle and causes paralysisExpand

Development of a diagnostic PCR assay for the detection and discrimination of four pathogenic .Eimeria species of the chicken.
We describe a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based assay for the detection, identification and differentiation of pathogenic species of .Eimeria in poultry. The internal transcribed spacer 1 (ITS1)Expand

Molecular characterisation of Cryptosporidium isolates from Swedish dairy cattle in relation to age, diarrhoea and region.
Cryptosporidium positive samples from 176 preweaned calves, young stock and cows of 48 herds were subjected to molecular characterisation of the 18S rRNA gene to determine which species are presentExpand

The current status of the small subunit rRNA phylogeny of the coccidia (Sporozoa).
There is no current comprehensive assessment of the molecular phylogeny of the coccidia, as all recently published papers either deal with subsets of the taxa or sequence data, or provide non-robustExpand

A simplified protocol for molecular identification of Eimeria species in field samples.
This study aimed to find a fast, sensitive and efficient protocol for molecular identification of chicken Eimeria spp. in field samples. Various methods for each of the three steps of the protocolExpand

Detection of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae in nose swabs from pigs by in vitro amplification of the 16S rRNA gene.
We report the use of PCR to detect DNA from Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, the etiological agent of enzootic porcine pneumonia. A primer set was designed for the amplification of a 649-bp fragment of theExpand

Molecular epidemiology and clinical manifestations of human cryptosporidiosis in Sweden
SUMMARY This study describes the epidemiology and symptoms in 271 cryptosporidiosis patients in Stockholm County, Sweden. Species/genotypes were determined by polymerase chain reaction–restrictionExpand

Global patterns reveal strong population structure in Haemonchus contortus, a nematode parasite of domesticated ruminants.
We have examined the global population genetic structure of Haemonchus contortus. The genetic variability was studied using both amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) and nad4 sequences ofExpand

Characterization of the 16S rRNA genes from Mycoplasma sp. strain F38 and development of an identification system based on PCR.
Mycoplasma sp. (strain F38) is the causative agent of contagious caprine pleuropneumonia, which is a goat disease of great global concern. Strain F38 belongs to the so-called "Mycoplasma mycoidesExpand
