Abstract

We present here the structure of a minicircle population based on transcriptome sequencing of Leptomonas pyrrhocoris. We show that minicircle DNA molecules are dimeric. As in dixenous species, the entire molecule of minicircle DNA is transcribed. This is the first minicircle transcriptome of monoxenous trypanosomatid species determined using NGS technology.
