Here, we report a transcriptome sequence of Trypanoplasma borreli isolated from its natural host, the common carp, Cyprinus carpio. The transcriptome allows an analysis of abundant cell surface proteins and acts as a comparator for understanding the evolution and pathogenicity of other Kinetoplastida, including several that infect humans.
