The genome projects represent one of the most important developments in our knowledge of parasites. However, translation of this knowledge into an understanding of parasite biology and then on to drugs, vaccines and other healthcare developments for the diseases will need some élan and clarity of thought by scientists and funding organizations. Only then will the activity associated with post-genomics be turned from what I have termed ‘genome babble’ to real opportunities in understanding these parasites.
