  Basic laboratory methods in Medical Parasitology by WHO Top


http://www.freebookcentre.net/biology-books-download/Basic-Laboratory-Methods-in-Medical-Parasitology.html .

This manual is a guide for laboratory workers. It explains the techniques to be used when examining feces, blood, urine, and other specimens for the presence of parasites.


  Malaria site Top


http://www.malariasite.com/

This web site provides a wide range of information on history of malaria, the implicated parasites and vectors, pathogenesis, clinical features, diagnosis, treatment, complications, and control measures of the disease. The web site was developed by Dr Bevinje Srinivas Kakkilaya, a physician practicing at Mangaluru, the coastal city in Karnataka State, South India. It was launched as a stand-alone site in 2004.


  International Society of Geospatial Health - GnosisGIS Top


http://www.gnosisgis.org/

GnosisGIS aims at maintaining a link between health workers and earth scientists committed to the development of global computer-based models for improvement of programs that can be implemented for control of schistosomiasis and other snail-borne diseases of medical and veterinary importance. The organization has expanded its scope to include other infectious diseases of medical and veterinary importance. The objectives of GnosisGIS are to enable collaboration of health scientists interested in the development of geographic information system-based infectious disease forecast systems. The society publishes the 'Geospatial Health' official journal for publication of peer-reviewed articles on health applications in the geospatial sciences, for disease risk mapping, and ecological modeling. In addition to offering training courses on health applications of geospatial tools through an 'International School of Geospatial Health', the society sponsors a series of 'International Symposia on Geospatial Health' at its annual meetings and publishes maps, data, and metadata concerning geographic information system health applications on the web.


  WormBase ParaSite Top


http://parasite.wormbase.org/index.html

WormBase ParaSite is an open-access source for genome sequences, genome browsers, semiautomatic annotation, and comparative genomics analysis of about 100 parasitic helminths. In addition, it includes a cross-species data-mining platform (BioMart), protein and nucleotide search, and a variant effect predictor. The WormBase ParaSite was developed by European Molecular Biology Laboratory, European Bioinformatics Institute, and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.


  VectorBase Top


https://www.vectorbase.org/

VectorBase is a National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Bioinformatics Resource Center, devoted to provide the scientific community with data on invertebrate vectors of human pathogens. The center is concerned with providing a forum for the distribution of news and information and for discussions concerning invertebrate vectors, as well as access to tools to facilitate the querying and analysis of the data sets presented on this site. The site delivers data on genomes, transcriptomes, proteomes, mitochondrial sequences, and population biology of invertebrate vectors of human pathogens.


  Nematode.net Top


http://nematode.net/NN3_frontpage.cgi

This site is a home page for a parasitic nematode project 'Expressed sequence tags' at The Genome Institute at Washington University in St Louis. The site was established in 2000 as a component of 'A Genomic Approach to Parasites from the Phylum Nematoda' of the National Institute of Health-National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Although http://nematode.net/NN3_frontpage.cgi started as a project site, over the years it has become a community resource dedicated to the study of parasitic nematodes. The site is owned by Washington University.
