Accessing complex genomic variation in Plasmodium falciparum natural infections

Abstract:

Genetic polymorphism in Plasmodium falciparum is a considerable obstacle to malaria intervention. Parasites have repeatedly evolved to overcome every front-line antimalarial deployed throughout history, and artemisinin resistant populations are expanding in Southeast Asia. Promising vaccine candidates routinely fail when challenged by the genetic diversity of natural parasite populations, and a recent trial using a blood-stage antigen showed immunity was allele specific. Mo...
