The aim of this study was to investigate the genetic diversity (Fst) in A.galli collected from different poultry production sites in southern Sweden, to identify possible common routes of colonization.....To put these ideas in context, we provide a detailed examination of two specific examples of the analysis of microarray data, both from parasitology, covering many of the most important points raised...Coccidia possess three distinct genomes: nuclear, mitochondrial, and plastid.The nature of these discoveries and the manner in which they are made are then used to lay out a series of opportunities and challenges for the next wave of parasite hunters. med ry e rec, sh to omnipresent obligatory intracellular parasites. velia (histones H2A, H2B; GAP-DH, Tuf A) and phylogenetic analyses are also presented and discussed here.ionally disease evasta the ge (Kopečná et al., 2006; Leander, 2007) have revealed only the tip of an ice ..." med ry e rec, sh to omnipresent obligatory intracellular parasites. velia (histones H2A, H2B; GAP-DH, Tuf A) and phylogenetic analyses are also presented and discussed here. Malaria remains one of the most significant global public health burdens, with nearly half of the world’s population at risk of infection.
Repertoire and arrangement of the apicoplast genome-encoded genes differ among apicomplexan genera, although within the genus phylogeny.
The past decade has seen the publication of a number of important discoveries about malaria parasite origins, all based on the application of molecular diagnostic tools to new sources of samples.
This review summarizes some of those recent discoveries and discusses their implication for our current understanding of the origin and evolution of the Plasmodium genus.
Major groups within the Apicomplexa were well supported with the mitochondrial, nuclear, and a combination of mitochondrial, nuclear and concatenated plastid gene sequences.
However, the genus oxidase subunit I) resolved the various apicomplexan groups with high Bayesian posterior probabilities.
