Toward a malaria haplotype map

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

Three new studies provide a genome-wide snapshot of genetic variation in Plasmodium falciparum, the most pathogenic of the parasites causing human malaria. These studies pave the way for mapping of genes underlying important parasite traits such as drug resistance and pathogenesis as well as for evolutionary analysis of selection in a parasite genome.
