Cover for Insights into the molecular detection of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Giardia duodenalis</i>: implications for epidemiology.

Giardia duodenalis is a widespread parasite of mammalian species, including humans. Due to its invariant morphology, investigation of aspects such as host specificity and transmission patterns requires a direct genetic characterization of cysts/trophozoites from host samples. A number of molecular...

Cover for Molecular epidemiology of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Cryptosporidium</i> and <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Giardia</i> infections.

For infectious diseases, molecular epidemiology can be defined as the use of molecular (predominantly genetic) methods to distinguish between strains of a microbial pathogen in order to identify markers of virulence or host range or to elucidate different transmission pathways. In this regard,...
