  • It's a Knockout The malaria parasite is one of the most important pathogens of humans. Increasing drug-resistance is an imminent public health disaster, and we urgently need to find new drugs. The recently acquired malarial genomes provide a plethora of targets. However, due to the genetic intractability of the parasite, it has been difficult to identify essential genes in the clinically relevant blood-stage of the parasite. Dvorin et al. (p. 910) investigated the function of a Plasmodium… CONTINUE READING
