In 1994, the World Health Organization (TDR) launched a new strategic initiative in parasite genome analysis, establishing international genome networks for filariae, Schistosoma, Leishmania, Trypanosoma brucei and T. cruzi. For Leishmania, a number of different but complementary approaches have been adopted by members of the Leishmania Genome Network. Our laboratory has been using cosmid clone fingerprinting to produce a physical map of the genome. Progress towards the completion of an… CONTINUE READING
