This film shows how computer software is used to create DNA sequences that can modify the DNA of malaria parasites.
This film shows how scientists work with malaria parasites in the lab; culturing parasites and preparing them so they can be seen using a microscope.
Resistance to antimalarial drugs is one of the biggest problems currently facing malaria control. Recent studies looking at the genome of the malaria parasite could help scientists understand how drug resistance has evolved – and develop the tools needed to keep it in check.
Sequencing the genome of the malaria parasite has revealed interesting clues as to how it is able to evade the human immune system for long enough to cause disease.
