Molecular phylogeny of the filaria genus Onchocerca with special emphasis on Afrotropical human and bovine parasites.
Filarial parasites of the genus Onchocerca are found in a broad spectrum of ungulate hosts. One species, O. volvulus, is a human parasite that can cause severe disease (onchocerciasis or 'riverExpand

Molecular systematics of five Onchocerca species (Nematoda: Filarioidea) including the human parasite, O. volvulus, suggest sympatric speciation
Abstract The genus Onchocerca (Nematoda: Filarioidea) consists of parasites of ungulate mammals with the exception of O. volvulus, which is a human parasite. The relationship between O. volvulus, O.Expand

Characterisation of nuclear ribosomal DNA sequences from Onchocerca volvulus and Mansonella ozzardi (Nematoda: Filarioidea) and development of a PCR-based method for their detection in skin biopsies.
The internal transcribed spacer region (ITS1, 5.8S gene and ITS2) of the two filarial nematodes Onchocerca volvulus and Mansonella ozzardi was sequenced, and two species-specific primers designed inExpand

Completion of the sequence of the nuclear ribosomal DNA subunit of Simulium sanctipauli, with descriptions of the 18S, 28S genes and the IGS
Abstract We describe the IGS‐ETS, 18S and 28S ribosomal gene sequences of Simulium sanctipauli Vajime & Dunbar, a member of the S. damnosum Theobald (Diptera: Simuliidae) complex of blackfliesExpand

Assessment of rDNA IGS as a molecular marker in the Simulium damnosum complex
Abstract For five cytospecies of the Simulium damnosum Theobald complex of blackflies (Diptera: Simuliidae) from West Africa, both ends of the intergenic spacer region (IGS) of the rDNA have beenExpand

Characterization of microsatellite loci in two closely related Lissotriton newt species
We have developed eight di- and tetranucleotide Lissotriton microsatellite markers. Eight loci were polymorphic in the palmate newt Lissotriton helveticus and six were polymorphic in the smooth newtExpand
