Abstract

We present tools that allow discrimination of closely related L. donovani strains circulating in the Terai region of Nepal. These can be used to study the micro-epidemiology of parasite populations, determine the geographical origin of infections, distinguish relapses from re-infection, and monitor the spread of particular variants.
