Toxoplasma gondii ME49 (TGA4)

About the Toxoplasma gondii genome

Toxoplasma gondii is a parasitic protist, belonging to the phylum Apicomplexa. It is carried by cats and few warm blooded animals including humans. Up to 20 to 30% of the world's population is estimated to be chronically infected with the apicomplexan parasite. It causes the Toxoplasmosis which is usually minor and self-limiting disease but can have serious or even fatal effects during pregnancy or in an immunocompromised human or cat.
