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

... which appears in the February 24 issue of Nature, presents the first genome-wide study of an amoeba. It is also the first genome sequence to be published from this class of amitochondrial human pathogens. The analysis reveals the degradation of the E. histolytica genome in its transition from a free-living ...
