Abstract

Despite the long path we have travelled in the past 30 years to unveil the mysteries of Blastocystis, we realize that there is still a long way to go, and many questions await satisfactory answers. Above all, do we really need to treat it or just live with it? To answer this very important question we need a better understanding of the biology, diversity, and ecological roles of Blastocystis. In this TrendsTalk we invite the scientific committee of the 3rd International Blastocystis Conference to reflect on the most recent advances presented during the virtual meeting on 2-4 June this year.
