ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.pt.2010.05.007||Abstract:||Trypanosoma brucei equiperdum and Trypanosoma brucei evansi are typically considered separate species, although a recent study suggested that these organisms can be classified as subspecies of Trypanosoma brucei, which we also favor. Here we present a scenario that attempts to explain the continuing evolution of the dyskinetoplastic and akinetoplastic strains, as a consequence of loss of selective pressure(s) leading to the loss of kinetoplast DNA. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.||Source Title:||Trends in Parasitology||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/102078||ISSN:||14714922||DOI:||10.1016/j.pt.2010.05.007|
