Genome assembly and annotationi GCA_000165365.1 from ENA/EMBL

Theileria parva is a unicellular eukaryote belonging to the Apicomplexa. It is a tick-borne hemoparasite infecting cattle and causing east coast fever. T. parva is also capable of reversibly transforming host cells. As such, T. parva is of economic importance, putting at risk live-stock throughout sub-tropical regions.

The genome was published in 2005. It comprises 8.3 Mb and about 4,000 predicted protein-coding genes.
