  • BACKGROUND Giardia duodenalis is a parasite of several mammalian species, including humans, distributed worldwide. This research aimed to identify the molecular assemblages/sub-assemblages of G. duodenalis and to determine the intra-assemblage genetic variation of the different genes of assemblages A and B in pre-school children in the cities of Araguari and Uberlândia, Minas Gerais, Brazil. METHODS The molecular characterization followed β-giardin (bg), glutamate dehydrogenase (gdh) and… CONTINUE READING
