About the Leishmania major genome
Leishmania is a Tryanosomatid protozoa and is the parasite responsible for the disease Leishmaniasia. Leishmania is transmitted by the bite of certain species of sand fly and affects the populations of 88 tropical and sub-tropical countries worldwide. The symptoms are cutaneous and muco-cutaneous lesions initially around the bite, the parasite can also migrate causing visceral leishmaniasis affecting the haemopoietic organs. The current genome corresponds to the Friedlin strain.
