BackgroundCyclospora cayetanensis is an apicomplexan that causes diarrhea in humans. The investigation of foodborne outbreaks of cyclosporiasis has been hampered by a lack of genetic data and poor understanding of pathogen biology. In this study we sequenced the genome of C. cayetanensis and inferred its metabolism and invasion components based on comparative genomic analysis.ResultsThe genome organization, metabolic capabilities and potential invasion mechanism of C. cayetanensis are very… CONTINUE READING
