Plasmodium Sequencing Project

The malaria parasite is one of the most widespread eukaryotic pathogens in the world today. Malaria remains a major global health threat with an estimated 300 to 500 million cases per year, and deaths of over a million children in Africa. Resistance to currently effective drugs, including drugs given in combinations to decrease the spread of resistance, is rapidly expanding. The next five years will see billions of dollars spent implementing interventions, particularly in Africa. Past experience suggests that large scale deployment of control measures will lead to selection for drug resistance in the malaria parasite and insecticide resistance in the mosquito vector.

The combined need to have genomic tools to monitor the evolutionary consequences of these large scale interventions and to discover new therapies and diagnostics provides a powerful argument to support the overall goal of this white paper to prepare for malaria disease surveillance and control in the 21st century.
