Genetic `barcode` to identify origin of malaria

Last Updated: Friday, June 13, 2014, 18:31

Containing malaria could be a lot more convenient as researchers have now designed a genetic barcode of malaria parasite, which can be used to identify the geographic origin of the parasite from a blood sample and monitor its spread.

DNA-tinkered, male-only mosquitoes to check malaria

Last Updated: Wednesday, June 11, 2014, 14:59

In a pioneering work towards eradicating malaria, scientists have modified mosquitoes to produce sperm that will only create males.

Malaria severity not determined just by parasite levels in blood

Although malaria kills some 600,000 African children each year, most cases of the mosquito-borne parasitic disease in children are mild. Repeated infection does generate some immunity, and episodes of severe malaria are unusual once a child reaches age 5.

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.

Deadly human malaria parasite may have come out of Africa

Last Updated: Saturday, February 22, 2014, 13:05

Researchers have claimed to have linked origin of deadly human malaria parasite to primates to Africa, and not Asia, as once believed.
