Understanding the biology of the Plasmodium falciparum apicoplast; an excellent target for antimalarial drug development.

Abstract

Malaria is a life-threatening tropical disease, caused by the intracellular parasite Plasmodium falciparum. The World Health Organization counts malaria as one of the top ten causes of worldwide death.
