Authors: Schares, Gereon and Venepally, Pratap and Lorenzi, Hernán A

The apicomplexan parasite Besnoitia besnoiti is the causative agent of bovine besnoitiosis that affects livestock, particularly cattle. The definitive host of B. besnoiti is unknown and its transmission only partially understood. Here, we report the first draft genome sequence, assembly, and annotation of this parasite.
