    • Abstract

       

      Genetic diversity withinEntamoeba histolytica led to the re-description of the species 10 years ago. However, more recent investigation has revealed significant diversity within the re-defined species. Both protein-coding and non-coding sequences show variability, but the common feature in all cases is the presence of short tandem repeats of varying length and sequence. The ability to identify strains ofE. histolytica may lead to insights into the population structure and epidemiology of the organism.
