There have been few investigations of genomes of Paragonimus westermani and related species. Most studies have focussed on questions such as the identities of species and relationships among them, origins and relationships of strains with different ploidy states, and the characterisation of genes producing immunologically significant proteins. In the context of these questions, work on the karyotypes, nuclear and mitochondrial genomes is reviewed.
