Abstract

This paper considers the various measures available to control several of the neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). To develop the optimum methods for controlling the parasites that cause these NTDs, knowledge of the life cycles of both the parasites and their vectors are essential. Each NTD requires ...

Abstract

A molecular epidemiological survey of the protozoal parasites that cause equine piroplasmosis was conducted using samples collected from horses and zebra from different geographical locations in South Africa. A total of 488 samples were tested for the presence of Theileria equi and/or Babesia...

Abstract

Background: This study aimed at identifying factors influencing the development of Human African Trypanosomosis (HAT, or sleeping sickness) in the focus of Bonon, located in the mesophile forest of Côte d'Ivoire. A previous study mapping the main daytime activity sites of 96 patients revealed an...

Abstract

This supplement contains 7 papers highlighting the application of modern approaches to gain a range of information on parasite biology and host-parasite interactions. The first paper reveals novel insights into the biology of the parasite-host interaction and describes molecular events coinciding...

Abstract

Colony size, honey yields and colony levels of infestation with Varroa jacobsoni of 30 queenright honeybee (Apis mellifera) colonies with naturally mated queens were evaluated over a two-year period. Workers taken from each colony were genotyped at four DNA-microsatellite loci to determine the...

Abstract

Cladistic analysis was applied to nematode genera of the family Acuariidae, and the phylogenetic tree formed was compared with those obtained using other analytical systems. Species in the genera Nippostrongylus and Heligmonoides were also analysed, and the validity of the reconstructed...

Abstract

Genetic exchange in the Trypanosomatidae is reviewed, in the following sections: laboratory experiments on genetic exchange (experimental crosses of Trypanosoma brucei, and a shorter section on other trypanosomatids); evidence from population genetics and evolutionary studies (methods, and evidence ...

Abstract

Acanthamoeba may serve as amplification vehicles for a variety of pathogenic facultative bacteria and bacterial endosymbionts. The spectrum of uncultured endosymbionts includes gram-negative rods and gram-variable cocci. Two Acanthamoeba strains that harbour gram-negative rod endosymbionts that...

Abstract

In the sequences of functional genes, the rate of substitution varies across sites. This chapter proposes a new method for estimating evolutionary distances between nucleotide sequences that takes into account this variation and estimates it from the data. Starting from the phylogeny built from...
