Fasciolopsis buski, the zoonotic intestinal flukes of pigs in South and Southeast Asia, is commonly prevalent in regions across Northeast India. Populations of the fluke collected from different parts of the region exhibit variations in morphology. The main objective of our study was to provide molecular characterization of the parasite so as to supplement morphological criteria, using ribosomal DNA cluster (rDNA), which is flanked by more conserved internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions.
