Overall, we identified 878 predicted taxa, with most sequences (49.8%) derived from fish (Actinopteri, Petromyzontidae), Oomycetes (21.4%), Arthropoda (classes Insecta, Decapoda; 16.6%), and apicomplexan
His major research interests are Apicomplexan
parasites of zoonotic interest, epidemiology of foodborne parasites, and molecular pathways in virulence and drug susceptibility in protozoans.
They are an apicomplexan
, part of a vast group of parasites that have a cellular compartment called a plastid, which is a part of a plant and algal cells where photosynthesis takes place.
Neutrophil extracellular trap formation as innate immune reactions against the apicomplexan
parasite Eimeria bovis.
