Abstract

<jats:p> We report the high-quality draft assemblies and gene annotations for 13 species and/or strains of the protozoan parasite genera <jats:italic>Leishmania</jats:italic> , <jats:italic>Endotrypanum</jats:italic> , and <jats:italic>Crithidia</jats:italic> , which span the phylogenetic diversity of the subfamily Leishmaniinae within the kinetoplastid order of the phylum Euglenazoa. These resources will support studies on the origins of parasitism. </jats:p>
