A landmark decision was taken in 2002 by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) in the UK to fund the genome sequencing of an eimerian (apicomplexan) parasite from the fowl. The project is a joint collaboration between the Institute for Animal Health (IAH) at Compton, UK and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, Cambridge, UK (see http://www.sanger.ac.uk/Projects/E_tenella/ and http://www.iah.bbsrc.ac.uk/eimeria/). The species chosen, Eimeria tenella, is the best… CONTINUE READING
