Study TypeWhole Genome Sequencing
Abstract Organism: The Kinetoplastida (Euglenozoa) are unicellular flagellates that include the trypanosomatid parasites, most notably Trypanosoma brucei, T. cruzi and Leishmania spp. These organisms cause substantial mortality and morbidity in humans and their livestock worldwide as the causative agents of ..

Description Bodo saltans is a free-living, flagellated Kinetoplastid. It is closest known non-parasitic relative of the parasitic group Trypanosomatidae, which includes the Human pathogens Trypanosoma brucei, T. cruzi and Leishmania spp. As such, it is an excellent comparator for the parasites, and a genome seq ..
