The Trichomonas vaginalis Genome Sequencing Project

The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) in 2003 released the first draft assembly of the Trichomonas vaginalis_genome, available through this website to the academic and not-for-profit research community for noncommercial use only. TIGR will release more data at regular intervals during the sequencing project, which should help researchers better understand this widespread parasite and its role in HIV infection, neo-natal disorders, predisposition to cervical cancer, and of course, vaginitis. The website also includes background information on T. vaginalis, as well as a link to TIGR's sequencing project for Entamoeba histolytica -- a closely related organism.
