BACKGROUND Risk assessment of tick-borne and zoonotic disease emergence necessitates sound knowledge of the particular microorganisms circulating within the communities of these major vectors. Assessment of pathogens carried by wild ticks must be performed without a priori, to allow for the detection of new or unexpected agents. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We evaluated the potential of Next-Generation Sequencing techniques (NGS) to produce an inventory of parasites carried by questing… CONTINUE READING
