For each Trichinella isolate, identified by the abbreviation ISS and a number,
the following information is available: species and/or genotype, common and scientific name of the original host,
country, locality, longitude and latitude of origin, year of isolation, the name and address of the
donor, the year in which the isolate was sent to the ITRC, the type of material available
(e.g., larvae in vivo, larvae under liquid nitrogen, DNA), and the test used to identify the parasites.
