Objective
1) Determine what genetic and genomic features distinguish Trichinella spiralis from Trichinella murrelli. 2) Utilize genomics to determine if microsatellite loci can be used to trace zoonotic outbreaks of Trichinella spiralis. 3) Determine the genetic features that account for the epidemic spread of certain strains of Toxoplasma gondii.
