Biomphalaria glabrata snails were collected by Omar dos Santos Carvalho (CPRR/Fiocruz) in the south east of Brazil (19o59' S 44o02' W), Belo Horizonte, district of Barreiro. Morphology-based species identification was confirmed by PCR_RFLP; 16S rDNA, NADH dehydrogenase 1 sequences (AY737280, AY737281). Lab-reared offspring of the wild caught snails proved susceptible to multiple strains of Schistosoma mansoni. BB02 snails are maintained as inbred lines at several research groups. A BAC library is available for this strain from the Arizona Genomics Institute (Tucson AZ, USA).
