A repetitive DNA fragment cloned from the malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, has been analysed. It contains a 21 base pair sequence which occurs in multiple tandem repeats. Two clusters of the same repeat are found in opposite orientations on the same DNA fragment. The repetitive DNA provides an additional way to distinguish between different strains of parasite by hybridisation to genomic blots and may serve as a species-specific probe for diagnosis.
