ABSTRACT
As the genomes of more eukaryotic pathogens are sequenced, understanding how molecular differences between parasite and
host might be exploited to provide new therapies has become a major focus. Central to cell function are RNA-containing
complexes involved in gene expression, such as the ribosome, the spliceosome, snoRNAs, RNase P, and telomerase, among
others. In this article we identify by comparative genomics and validate by RNA analysis numerous previously unknown
