A Feast of Malaria Parasite Genomes

Jane M. Carlton, Steven A. Sullivan

Research output: Research - peer-reviewShort survey

Abstract

The Plasmodium genus has evolved over time and across hosts, complexifying our understanding of malaria. In a recent Nature paper, Rutledge et al. (2017) describe the genome sequences of three major human malaria parasite species, providing insight into Plasmodium evolution and raising the question of how many species there are.
