Welcome to CryptoCapture.org!

Welcome to the project page for NIH grant 1R01AI148667-01A1 Capturing The Genomic Variation Present In Cryptosporidium and Cryptosporidiosis.  This project represents a large community effort to survey the population genetic structure of human-infecting Cryptosporidia. A hybrid capture approach will be used to enrich Cryptosporidium DNA from fecal DNA or oocysts samples and generate sequence.  The new data will be compared to improved reference genome sequences and annotation that will be generated as a part of this project. The hybrid capture baits developed will be made available to the community via arborbiosci.com.
