- A foreign invader or a reclusive native? DNA bar coding reveals a distinct European lineage of the zoonotic parasite Schistosoma turkestanicum (syn. Orientobilharzia turkestanicum ())Scott P Lawton
Molecular Parasitology Laboratory, School of Life Sciences, Kingston University, Kingston upon Thames, Surrey KT1 2EE, UK
Infect Genet Evol 14:186-93. 2013..This may also indicate that the parasite may have unknown populations established in several other countries in Eastern, Central and Southern Europe...
- Genomes and geography: genomic insights into the evolution and phylogeography of the genus SchistosomaScott P Lawton
The Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences, Aberystwyth University, Penglais, Aberystwyth, Ceredigion, SY23 3D, UK
Parasit Vectors 4:131. 2011..Here we examine how modern genomic techniques may give a more in depth understanding of the evolution of schistosomes and highlight the complexity of speciation and divergence in this group...
- Adaptive radiation within the vaccine target tetraspanin-23 across nine Schistosoma species from AfricaKatie L Sealey
Molecular Parasitology Laboratory, School of Life Sciences, Kingston University, Kingston upon Thames, Surrey, UK
Int J Parasitol 43:95-103. 2013..This could be indicative of host-specific evolution of antigens in different species of schistosomes, a factor that should be considered carefully when developing vaccine targets...
