About Babesia bigemina str. Bond
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.
General information about this species can be found in Wikipedia.
