Study TypeWhole Genome Sequencing
Abstract Project to produce a reference quality genome for the filarial nematode responsible for causing River Blindness, Onchocerca volvulus.
Description Onchocerca volvulus is a filarial nematode parasite of humans, causing Onchocerciasis, or River Blindness, which affects over 37 million people, mainly in Africa. It is a severely debilitating disease, which is transmitted to humans by black fly. This project aims to sequence and analyse the nuclea .. [more]
