Entamoeba histolytica (JCVI-ESG2-1.0)

About the Entamoeba histolytica genome

Entamoeba histolytica is an anaerobic parasitic protozoan, part of the genus Entamoeba. Predominantly infecting humans and other primates, E. histolytica is estimated to infect about 50 million people worldwide. Entamoeba histolytica (strain HM-1:IMSS), was the first human amoeba to have its genome sequenced, assembled and analyzed. Whole genome shotgun sequencing with small insert libraries was used to carry out sequencing to a 12.5-fold coverage.
