Title: Molecular systematics of the protozoan parasite Giardia intestinalis : identification of cryptic species / Paul T. Monis.

Abstract: The aim of this research is to investigate the phylogeny of isolates of the intestinal protozoan parasite Giardia intestinalis using molecular systematic techniques. Most of the isolates used in this study are propagated by the infection of suckling mice. Isolates are characterised allozymically and their genetic relationships are inferred using clustering methods. Seven lineages of isolates are identified, five comprising animal-derived G. intestinalis, and two comprising human-and animal-derived G. intestinalis.
