Interpretive Summary: BEI Resources was developed by NIAID as a centralized biological resource center for research reagents to the scientific community (http://www.beiresources.org/). They have a considerable amount of reagents and isolates for parasitologists working with Entamoeba histolytica, Giardia, Toxoplasma, and Cryptosporidium but current resources for Babesia research are limited. This submission consists of DNA plasmids containing conserved fragments of the Babesia bovis and Babesia bigemina small subunit ribosomal RNA genes. These plasmids would be useful positive controls for researchers developing DNA-based assays.

Technical Abstract: BEI Resources was developed by NIAID as a centralized biological resource center for research reagents to the scientific community (http://www.beiresources.org/).

This submission consists of DNA plasmids containing conserved fragments of the Babesia bovis and Babesia bigemina SSU rRNA genes. These plasmids would be useful positive controls for researchers developing DNA-based assays.
