Abstract:
Trypanosomes are single-celled, parasitic eukaryotes found in all vertebrate classes. Two subspecies of tsetse-transmitted trypanosomes are able to cause Human African Trypanosomiasis (HAT) and a wide range of trypanosomes cause Animal African Trypanosomiasis (AAT), whilst other species do not cause disease at all. Therefore, it is important to accurately identify the species of trypanosomes that infect wild populations of tsetse flies in order to ascertain the disease risk these flies pose to the surrounding area.
