Analysis of DNA Exchange Using Thymidine Analogs (ADExTA) in Trypanosoma cruzi
Trypanosoma cruzi is a protozoan parasite belonging to the Trypanosomatidae family. Although the trypanosomatids multiply predominantly by clonal generation, the presence of DNA exchange in some of them has been puzzling researchers over ...
