Eight geographical isolates of Schistosoma japonicum from Taiwan and mainland China and one isolate of Schistosoma mansoni were studied by RAPD analysis using six arbitrary primers and SSR-PCR analysis using a (CA)8RY primer. The genetic distance was determined by the percentage of unshared bands. The RAPD and SSR-PCR results showed that the genetic distance between S. mansoni and S. japonicum was more than 0.900 and 0.850 respectively; the genetic distance between the eight geographical… CONTINUE READING
