We report high-quality draft assemblies and gene annotation for 13 species and/or strains of the protozoan parasite genera Leishmania, Endotrypanum and Crithidia, which span the phylogenetic diversity of the Leishmaniinae sub-family within the kinetoplastid order of the phylum Euglenazoa. These resources will support future studies on the origins of parasitism.
