Sequence variation of the Cytochrome b gene of various human infecting members of the genus Leishmania and their phylogeny
The Cytochrome b (Cyt b) gene has proved to be useful for identification and classification of many mammals and plants. In order to evaluate the utility of this gene for discrimination of LeishmaniaExpand

Phylogenic analysis of the genus Leishmania by cytochrome b gene sequencing.
In a previous report (Luyo-Acero et al., 2004), we demonstrated that cytochrome b (Cyt b) gene analysis is an effective method for classifying several isolates of the genus Leishmania; hence, we haveExpand
