Blaxter, unpublished observations). THE PARASITES AND THEIR GENOMES The field of parasite genomics is rapidly changing. The speed with which genome data can be acquired will make any simple review of the current state of parasite genomics date rapidly. Therefore, below I have indicated the status of the genome projects, the sorts of data available, and highlighted some of the striking research findings that have already emerged. Each parasite genome project has developed databases to display and analyse its data.

After an exhaustive search for additional ‘intact’ copies of the coxII gene, they concluded that the extra nucleotides were added at the RNA level via an unknown ‘editing’ process. With acceptance of this unorthodox idea came insights into other previously unexplained mysteries of mitochondrial gene expression, such as the apparent use of an altered genetic code in plant mitochondria. Examination of plant mitochondrial (and chloroplast) mRNAs showed that they also differed in specific ways from the genes from Bloodstream stage: 12S 9S ND8 ND7 which they were transcribed, but in this case the differences were due to cytidine (C) to uridine (and more rarely U to C) changes rather than alterations in overall mRNA length.
