How can you use “parasitism” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • However, with the completed C. elegans genome available as a reference 'model' nematode, it is now possible to examine the emerging genetic resources for Meloidogyne comprehensively, to begin to address the question of evolution of parasitism and, in particular, a possible role for HGT.

  • A possible ancient bacterial origin of these genes has been theorized [ 17 18 19 ] . A bacterial origin for a number of root-knot nematode (RKN) genes also has been proposed, although their possible role in parasitism is less clear.

  • Second, both organisms establish intimate developmental interactions with host plants, and mounting evidence suggests that the mechanisms for these interactions are also shared [ 31 ] . It seems a reasonable hypothesis that the origin of parasitism in Meloidogyne may have been facilitated by acquisition of genetic material from soil bacteria through horizontal transfer.

  • Conceptually, several mechanisms affecting evolution to parasitism can be envisioned.

  • The inclusion of the parasites M. tuberculosis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa in the cluster of bacteria with large genomes probably reflects the recent origin of parasitism in these lineages.
