The PCR amplification was performed using a set of oligonucleotide primers (TBR 1 and TBR 2) for Trypanosoma brucei
as described earlier (Ijaz et al., 1998).
As part of the research, the authors isolated the novel bacterium from the midgut of the tsete fly that also harbours the protozoan Trypanosoma brucei
gambiense (Tbg), responsible for Human African Trypanosomiasis, known as sleeping sickness.

This project will lead to important new fundamental knowledge, allowing the development of lead compounds as novel therapeutics against the parasitic protozoa Trypanosoma brucei
and potentially Trypanosoma cruzi, and related Leishmania species.
