The completion of the genome sequence for Plasmodium falciparum, the species responsible for most malaria human deaths, has the potential to reveal hundreds of new drug targets and proteins involved in pathogenesis. However, only approximately 35% of the genes code for proteins with an identifiable function. The absence of routine genetic tools for studying(More)
Malaria is the cause of significant global morbidity and mortality with 300-500 million cases annually. Despite its disease burden relatively little is known about the molecular biology of the pathogen that causes malaria. For example, the completion of the genome sequence of Plasmodium falciparum, the species responsible for the most severe form of human(More)
