Researchers have generated a 3D model of the human malaria parasite genome at three different stages in the parasite`s life cycle.

Key protein essential for malaria parasite transmission to mosquitoes found

Last Updated: Monday, February 24, 2014, 14:34

Researchers have found that a single regulatory protein acts as the master genetic switch that triggers the development of male and female sexual forms (termed gametocytes) of the malaria parasite.

A team of researchers has designed compounds that can work against drug-resistant strains of malaria parasites.

How body`s immune system fights off malaria

Last Updated: Tuesday, January 14, 2014, 11:49

By using a strain of mice that mimics many of the features of the human immune system and can be infected with the most common human form of the malaria parasite, a team of scientists has identified a key host defense mechanism.

Malaria may be evolving around natural defence

Last Updated: Saturday, November 16, 2013, 12:17

Scientists have discovered recent genetic mutations in a malaria parasite and have found a duplication of a gene known to enable the parasite to infect red blood cells and two possible additional components to a more complex red cell invasion mechanism.
