Abstract

There is an important role for in vitro assays to better understand the initial steps of malaria infection. In this section, we describe both microscopy-based and flow cytometry-based sporozoite invasion, migration and development assays with the rodent malaria parasites, Plasmodium berghei and Plasmodium yoelii, and the human malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum.
