Apicomplexans are responsible for significant human and animal disease worldwide, including malaria and toxoplasmosis. Herein we summarize recent advances in gene expression analysis in these eukaryotic pathogens, especially with respect to their developmental biology, and discuss the impact this work may have on the development of new vaccines and chemotherapeutics.
