Study Detail

TitleLeishmania_species
Study TypeWhole Genome Sequencing
Abstract Pair-end sequencing has been generated from whole genomic DNA from a range of Leishmania species. This data is used to improve the sequence and assembly of Leishmania reference genomes and to examine heterozygosities and interstrain variation between genes that may account for differences in disease ..

Description Leishmania is an intracellular protistan parasite affecting macrophages and dendritic cells. Leishmania infections result in a wide range of symptoms in human hosts depending on the species or strain involved. Several whole genome sequences currently exist for Leishmania species. To correct sequenci .. [more]
