CRISPR-Cas- and Aptamer-based Systems for Diagnosing Pathogens: A Review

Announcing a new article publication for Zoonoses journal.  Pathogenic infections cause severe clinical illnesses in humans and animals. Increased encounters between humans and animals and constant environmental changes exacerbate the transmission of zoonotic infectious diseases. Recently, the World Health Organization has declared some zoonotic epidemics as public health emergencies of international concern. Hence, rapid and […]

Genetic Manipulation Toolkits in Apicomplexan Parasites

Announcing a new article publication for Zoonoses journal. Apicomplexan parasites are a group of intracellular pathogens of great medical and veterinary importance, including Toxoplasma gondii and Plasmodium, which cause toxoplasmosis and malaria, respectively. Efficient and accurate manipulation of their genomes is essential to dissect their complex biology and to design new interventions. Over the past several decades, scientists […]
