About this book
Summarises the current state of various parasite genome projects and the bioinformatics of parasite genome analysis, covering pathogenic bacteria, yeasts, trypanosomes and apicomplexan parasites, schistosomes and nematode pathogens of both humans and plants.
1. Preface; 2. The utility of complete genome sequences in the study of pathogenic bacteria; 3. Status of protozoan genome analysis: trypanosomatids; 4. Data mining parasite genomes: haystack searching with a computer; 5. Helminth genome analysis: the current status of the filarial and schistosome genome projects; 6. Parasite helminth genomics; 7. The importance of reverse genetics in determining gene function in apicomplexan parasites; 8. Characterization of plant nematode genes: identifying targets for a transgenic defence; 9. Whole genome genetic-typing in yeast using high-density oligonucleotide arrays.
