Project Description

We are currently focused on two aspects of rapid antigenic variation in Babesia bovis: [1] the molecular machinery underpinning the process, and [2] the transport of virulence proteins from the intraerythrocytic parasite and insertion into the red cell membrane. Student would work on some aspect of one of the two areas.
