About the Leishmania major genome
Leishmania is a Tryanosomatid protozoa and is the parasite responsible for the disease Leishmaniasia.

The symptoms are cutaneous and muco-cutaneous lesions initially around the bite, the parasite can also migrate causing visceral leishmaniasis affecting the haemopoietic organs.
