Schistosomiasis: publication of genetic map will stimulate research It can damage internal organs and cause growth and cognitive impairment in children.
This brand new edition Diseases of the Liver and Biliary System, now named Sherlock's Diseases of the Liver and Biliary System, after the late Professor Dame Sheila Sherlock, provides concise, didactic clinical guidance from the leading experts in the field.
Genome researchers in San Antonio, Texas have constructed a schistosomiasis features map for schistosomiasis features blood fluke Schistosoma mansoni, one of the main causes of the disease. Their work is published in the open access journal Genome Biology.
The researchers say they hope the map will stimulate research and open schistosomiasis features to new advances in combating this neglected human pathogen. The researchers used two adult flukes to breed 88 S. By comparing the genetic information of the offspring to the parents, they were able to generate a genetic map of the chromosomes of the pathogen.
In malaria parasites, the linkage map has resulted in the identification of major genes underlying drug resistance and host specificity. Dr Criscione said the map would help overcome the current lack of tools available to study S.

It will facilitate high resolution population genetic studies of S. The map presented expands the genetic toolkit for S.
