The last decade has seen a significant development in the volume and quality of genomic data generated for many of the kinetoplastid organisms, in particular, those of medical and veterinary importance. The most advanced projects are for the three annotated and almost complete genomes of the important human and animal pathogens Leishmania major, Trypanosoma brucei, and Trypanosoma cruzi. This short review describes some of the current areas of genomic research on the Kinetoplastida and provides a list of the publicly available genome and post-genomic data resources.
