Panning for molecular gold in whipworm genomes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Two new studies report genomic data on three species of whipworm, soil-transmitted parasitic worms responsible for trichuriasis. These genomes provide insights into host-pathogen interactions and potential for new drug targets for helminth therapy.
