Proteomics and Genomics in Veterinary Parasitology ?¢????? A Diagnostic Tool


Sudhakara Reddy B and Sivajothi S

A different number of modern molecular technologies, genomics and proteomics in applied areas of veterinary parasitology are increasing rapidly. To assess the molecular and genetic host parasitic interaction different advanced molecular tools are required and it is useful in the diagnosis of parasitic diseases. The important molecular tool for identification and diagnosis of parasites is polymerase chain reaction as well as there are other so many applications. In genomics, species-specific probes or primers are available along with conventional techniques. These techniques will give more information on the DNA sequences of parasites will reveal many more unique sequences which can be used for identification, diagnosis of parasitic infections. Genomics is crucial for the assessment of evolutionary biology, molecular epidemiology, physiology of parasites and vaccine development. These techniques may also help in the selection of genetically resistant hosts to parasite infection and discovery of new antiparasitic drugs, improvements to existing chemotherapeutic families and monitoring of drug resistance. From the last decade utilization of the aspects of molecular biology and their applications increased and it is essential to teach and train the veterinary parasitologists.…
