For information on the proper use of pre-publication data shared by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute (including details of any publication moratoria), please see http://www.sanger.ac.uk/datasharing/The drug Praziquantel is the most commonly used drug for parasitic flatworms. It is currently being increasingly used in mass drug administration programmes, raising concerns over whether resistance will develop. Although widely used, its mode of action was until very recently uncertain. This study will investigate the praziquantel mode of action and resistance by sequencing the transcriptomes of Dugesia japonica and different stages and strains of S. mansoni.
