Detection and molecular characterization of Giardia and Cryptosporidium in Canadian dairy cattle

Tatjana Coklin
Giardia and Cryptosporidium are intestinal protozoan parasites that infect a wide range of host species, including humans. DNA sequencing of Giardia and Cryptosporidium isolates from human and animal sources has identified numerous species and genotypes, and has demonstrated that a number of Giardia and Cryptosporidium genotypes are shared between animals and humans. Therefore, livestock may act as a source of contamination of the food and water supply. The goal of this study was to optimize...
