Our knowledge on comparative genomics of the malaria parasites has advanced a step forward with the publication of the genomes of two primate-infecting malaria parasites: Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium knowlesi. Even though the genomes of these organisms are the fifth and sixth Plasmodium genomes to be sequenced, respectively, both have revealed previously unknown features, which are discussed in this month's Genome Watch.
