mitochondrial small-subunit rDNA sequences. ’Dog_Tartu_genotype 1’ is the E. granulosus genotype G1 sequence obtained in this study, all others are homologous sequences from various E. granulosus genotypes and Echinococcus species from GenBank. The small-subunit rDNA fragment corresponds to positions 9984–10133 in AF297617. Note that the E. granulosus sequence obtained in this study shows 100% identity with the E. granulosus genotype G1 (AF297617). For other Echinococcus species the identity is lower (≤95%).
