Abstract:

The parasitic nematode genus Strongyloides contains an important human pathogen and many animal parasitic species, which can serve as models for basic and applied research. Strongyloides spp. undergo a unique and complex life cycle, which includes easily accessible sexual free-living generations in between asexual parasitic generations. In this thesis I present two project, one with a more applied focus on human parasite S. stercoralis, and the other on basic biological questions within the sheep parasite S. papillosus.
