Coccidia are protozoan parasites responsible for disease worldwide. The orally transmissible stages of coccidia make them food- and waterborne threats. The occurrence of multiple, human-infectious coccidia with diverse life cycles suggests that alterations in host range are a frequent occurrence, and can underlie the rapid emergence of pathogens.
