Characterisation of anisakid nematodes with zoonotic potential by nuclear ribosomal DNA sequences.
Larvae of three species of anisakid nematode from fish, Anisakis simplex, Hysterothylacium aduncum and Contracaecum osculatum, were characterised genetically using a molecular approach. The nuclearExpand

Differentiation of Haemonchus placei from H. contortus (Nematoda: Trichostrongylidae) by the ribosomal DNA second internal transcribed spacer.
There has been much debate as to whether H. placei is a separate species to H. contortus. The aim of this study is to provide molecular information to assess the species status of H. placei. UsingExpand

Single‐strand conformation polymorphism‐based analysis of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 reveals significant substructuring in hookworm populations
Sequence heterogeneity in a portion of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 gene (pcox1) was measured for the hookworms, Ancylostoma caninum from Australia, A. duodenale from China, andExpand
