Parasite surfaces support multiple functions required for survival within their hosts, and maintenance and functionality of the surface depends on membrane trafficking. To understand the evolutionary history of trypanosomatid trafficking, where multiple lifestyles and mechanisms of host interactions are known, we examined protein families central to(More)
The Kinetoplastida are flagellated protozoa evolutionary distant and divergent from yeast and humans. Kinetoplastida include trypanosomatids, and a number of important pathogens. Trypanosoma brucei, Trypanosoma cruzi and Leishmania spp. inflict significant morbidity and mortality on humans and livestock as the etiological agents of human African(More)
— Genetic maps are the best guides available to traverse the genome of an organism. The challenge for geneticists is to generate the genetic maps from the huge amount of data, which has to be integrated in a concise and precise manner. The goal here is to obtain the best possible arrangement of genetic markers on the map and this necessitates the use of(More)
