Brugia malayi is a gonochoristic (male-female) filarial parasite, of medical interest because it infects mosquito vectors (Aedes,Anopheles, and Culex) and humans, and is phylogenetically representative of other infectious nematodes. Infection of humans by B. malayi causes filariasis.
It has the following Web resources:
1. An article describing its genomic sequence.
6. In silico predictions of possible drug targets in B. malayi.
NOTE: WormBase is a scientific database for experimental work on C. elegans and other laboratory nematodes: it is not a resource for medical information, it is not run or staffed by clinicians, and it should not be used as a source of advice on parasitic nematode infections. If you need such advice, please contact a qualified physician, preferably one trained in parasitic diseases.
