Our research has three main goals: 1st is to identify a local source of Neorickettsia infected digeneans, 2nd is to establish a Neorickettsia infected lineage of trematodes in the laboratory, and 3rd is to investigate the manner of transmission, both in the asexual and sexual phases of the trematode life cycle, as well as in between lineages of digeneans.
