Draft Genome Sequences of Leishmania ( Leishmania ) amazonensis , Leishmania ( Leishmania ) mexicana , and Leishmania ( Leishmania ) aethiopica , Potential Etiological Agents of Diffuse Cutaneous Leishmaniasis



Draft Genome Sequences of Leishmania ( Leishmania ) amazonensis , Leishmania ( Leishmania ) mexicana , and Leishmania ( Leishmania ) aethiopica , Potential Etiological Agents of Diffuse Cutaneous Leishmaniasis



Microbiology Resource Announcements 8(20):



We present here the draft genome sequences of Leishmania (Leishmania) amazonensis, Leishmania (Leishmania) mexicana, and Leishmania (Leishmania) aethiopica, potential etiological agents of diffuse cutaneous leishmaniasis (DCL). Sequence data were obtained using PacBio and MiSeq platforms. The PacBio assemblies generated using Canu v1.6 are more contiguous than are those in the available data.
