Genome sequence of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum
The parasite Plasmodium falciparum is responsible for hundreds of millions of cases of malaria, and kills more than one million African children annually. Here we report an analysis of the genome… Expand
TriTrypDB: a functional genomic resource for the Trypanosomatidae
TriTrypDB (http://tritrypdb.org) is an integrated database providing access to genome-scale datasets for kinetoplastid parasites, and supporting a variety of complex queries driven by research and… Expand
The Genome Sequence of the Malaria Mosquito Anopheles gambiae
Anopheles gambiae is the principal vector of malaria, a disease that afflicts more than 500 million people and causes more than 1 million deaths each year. Tenfold shotgun sequence coverage was… Expand
A proteomic view of the Plasmodium falciparum life cycle
The completion of the Plasmodium falciparum clone 3D7 genome provides a basis on which to conduct comparative proteomics studies of this human pathogen. Here, we applied a high-throughput proteomics… Expand
Comparative genomics of the neglected human malaria parasite Plasmodium vivax
The human malaria parasite Plasmodium vivax is responsible for 25–40% of the ∼515 million annual cases of malaria worldwide. Although seldom fatal, the parasite elicits severe and incapacitating… Expand
Genome sequence and comparative analysis of the model rodent malaria parasite Plasmodium yoelii yoelii
Species of malaria parasite that infect rodents have long been used as models for malaria disease research. Here we report the whole-genome shotgun sequence of one species, Plasmodium yoelii yoelii,… Expand
Comparative genomic analyses of the human fungal pathogens Coccidioides and their relatives.
While most Ascomycetes tend to associate principally with plants, the dimorphic fungi Coccidioides immitis and Coccidioides posadasii are primary pathogens of immunocompetent mammals, including… Expand
Chromosome 2 sequence of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum.
Chromosome 2 of Plasmodium falciparum was sequenced; this sequence contains 947,103 base pairs and encodes 210 predicted genes. In comparison with the Saccharomyces cerevisiae genome, chromosome 2… Expand
Genome Sequence of Theileria parva, a Bovine Pathogen That Transforms Lymphocytes
We report the genome sequence of Theileria parva, an apicomplexan pathogen causing economic losses to smallholder farmers in Africa. The parasite chromosomes exhibit limited conservation of gene… Expand
Interpolated Markov models for eukaryotic gene finding.
Computational gene finding research has emphasized the development of gene finders for bacterial and human DNA. This has left genome projects for some small eukaryotes without a system that addresses… Expand
