Study TypePopulation Genomics
Abstract Genome sequencing of four independent inter- and intra-specific Leishmania hybrids and parental lines, to investigate the mechanism of genetic exchange in Leishmania.
Description It is currently well accepted in the Leishmania research community that sexual recombination occurs between promastigotes in the insect vector. Little data is available on the few hybrid parasites known from the field, so we aim to generate genomic sequence data from a number of different natural hy .. [more]
