Abstract

Morphological identification of tilapia species is complicated by extensive intraspecific variation of morphological characters used for classical identification. To address this obstacle, use of molecular techniques as additional tools for identification of these cichlids is recommended. Further,...

Abstract

Background: Geological evolution of the African continent has been subject to complex processes including uplift, volcanism, desert formation and tectonic rifting. This complex geology has created substantial biogeographical barriers, and coupled with anthropogenic introductions of freshwater...

Abstract

Background: The infection in dogs due to canine parvovirus (CPV), is a highly contagious one with high mortality rate. The present study was undertaken for a detailed genetic analysis of partial VP2 gene i.e., 630 bp isolated from rectal swab samples of infected domestic and stray dogs from all...

Abstract

Newcastle disease virus (NDV) is a prototype member of avian paramyxovirus serotype 1 (APMV-1), which causes severe and contagious disease in the commercial poultry and wild birds. Despite extensive vaccination programs and other control measures, the disease remains endemic around the globe...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence and diversity of infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) genotypes in poultry flocks in 16 areas of Morocco between 2010 and 2014. A total of 360 chicken flocks suspected of being infected by IBV were screened for the IBV N gene using real-time...

Abstract

Quantitative genetic studies in natural populations are of growing interest to speciation research since divergence is often believed to arise through micro-evolutionary change, caused by natural selection on functional morphological traits. The species flock of cichlid fishes in Africa's oldest...

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

Cuticular hydrocarbon composition is used to explain hypothetical phylogenies among sympatric and allopatric populations of Amblyomma cajennense, A. variegatum and Ixodes ricinus tick species. The method proposed here uses a parsimony analysis of endemicity by disjunct biochemical data (PAEDB)...
