Genome of deadly amoeba shows surprising complexity, evidence of lateral gene transfer

...t bacteria. The E. histolytica genome sequence is expected to help in the development of new vaccines as well as diagnostic tests that can distinguish the amoeba's most deadly strains. The parasite infects an estimated 50 million people and causes as many as 100,000 deaths a year -- second only to malaria as...
