- ... The zoonotic mosquito-borne filarial nematode Dirofilaria repens causes subcutaneous and ocular infections in dogs, cats and humans. From infected vertebrate hosts, microfilariae are taken up by mosquitoes and develop into infective L3. These are transmitted to new vertebrate hosts and develop over two further moults to adult worms. The aims of the project were (i) the de novo sequencing and annot ...

- ... BACKGROUND: Culicoides (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) is a genus of small biting midges (also known as “no-see ums”) that currently includes 1368 described species. They are proven or suspected vectors for important pathogens affecting animals such as bluetongue virus (BTV) and Schmallenberg virus (SBV). Currently little information is available on the species of Culicoides present in Serbia. Thus, th ...
