Hello,


I am working now in  Plasmodium falciparum, but I am not interested in 
any specific system. What I really want to do is try to see if can be 
established a relationship between life cycles and virulence. A year or 
so ago, apeared a paper in Science where virulence was associated with 
vertical and horizontal transmission. 

Eweld has made some very interesting points based on the parasite 
transmission. Is well the idea is not original, I want to see the 
evidence by myself.... or try to get it from a comparative study of 
several life cycles. In which parasite do you work with? The book that 
you suggested is very good! I already was working with it. I will send a 
summary but also my own contribution to the list as soon I finished. Read you
