About me

My project is based on tick species and parasites they harbor. This entail morphology and molecular analysis of tick species collected from domestic animals. Characterization of specimens using phylogenetic analysis and other software. Detection of parasites using conventional PCR and phylogenetic analysis of the parasites detected. Using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) to detect all other bacterial communities that are harbored by tick species.
