P. yoelii yoelii, one of three recognised subspecies of P. yoelii, is a murine malaria species, originally isolated from the blood of thicket rats in Central Africa. The species is amply used as a model within drug and vaccine research. Although the core genome shares large block of synteny with human malaria parasites, there are several well-characterised breaks in synteny and the gene organisation in the subtelomeres is substantially different.

An initial analysis of a draft genome produced at The Institute for Genome Research by Sanger-sequencing and published in 2002. From these data P. yoelii has an estimated genome size of 23.1 Mb distributed across 14 chromosomes, but with > 5000 gaps. DNA for this sequencing project was obtained from P. yoelii yoelii 17XNL strain.
