Allelic sequence heterozygosity in single Giardia parasites

BMC Microbiology, 05/08/2012

The results conclusively show that ASH does occur at the single cell level in assemblage B Giardia. Furthermore, sequence heterogeneity generated during sequence–based genotyping of assemblage B isolates may possess the complexity of single cell ASH in concurrence with co–infections of different assemblage B sub–genotypes.
