The current rapid spread of leishmaniases caused by Leishmania tropica and the complexity of its clinical spectrum call for this parasite's epidemiological and evolutionary investigation. Evaluation of its population structure by isoenzyme electrophoresis and previous molecular biological analysis has proved difficult. In this study, we used 21 microsatellite loci to type 117 strains from different African and Asian locations. Eighty-one different genotypes were found. A genetic bottleneck… CONTINUE READING
