Parasitic Flatworms: Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Immunology And Physiology Pdf

By A. G. Maule and N. J. Marks

Parasitic Flatworms: Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Immunology and Physiology PDF. Parasitic flatworms include Cestodes (tapeworms) and trematodes (flukes, schistosomes, etc) and are the cause of a number of major diseases of medical and veterinary significance. Much recent research has focused on molecular biology and genomics. this book aims to review advances in our understanding of these and related topics such as flatworm biochemistry, immunology and physiology. Where appropriate, comparisons are made between different parasitic flatworms and between parasitic and free-living species. Contributors to the book include leading authorities from Europe, North and South America, and Australia.
