Trypanosoma brucei

A species with three subspecies: T. brucei brucei, T. brucei gambiense, and T. brucei rhodesiense. The subspecies T. brucei brucei causes a wasting disease in cattle called nagana but does not produce disease in humans. The subspecies T. brucei gambiense causes African sleeping sickness in western and central Africa. The subspecies T. brucei rhodesiense, transmitted by the tsetse fly, causes African sleeping sickness in eastern and southern Africa.

This project will study the mitochondrion in the sleeping sickness parasite Trypanosoma brucei. The mitochondrion is a cell organelle that is often described as the 'power plant' of eukaryotic cells (complex cells from multicellular organisms like humans, or unicellular organisms like yeast or trypanosomes that are not bacteria) but we now know that they provide the cell with much more than energy.
