About Babesia bigemina str. Bond {#about-babesia-bigemina-str.-bond .first}


Babesia bigemina is a species of alveolates belonging to the phylum Apicomplexa and the family Babesiidae. In cattle, it causes babesiosis, also called
"Texas fever
". Its length is 4-5 µm and width is 2-3 µm. Usually, it has an oval shape. In blood cells, it is located midsagittally and its size gets up to two-thirds of blood cell size. Babesia bigemina is a type of protozoan parasites and they are transmitted by Boophilus ticks which are prevalent in tropics. The genome for B. bigemina is incomplete and unassembled, thus needing further research.
