This global collaboration enables researchers to analyse P. falciparum genome variation in clinical samples that they have collected and provides a web atlas of parasite polymorphism by aggregating genome variation data from multiple studies. We're supporting these efforts by providing expertise for population genetic analysis, web application development and research capacity building.
Learn how we helped build a web application for the MalariaGEN P. falciparum Community Project that visualises genomic and population genetic data. Importantly, the application connects this data to information about the scientific community that generated it—shedding light on the genetic diversity of this lethal malaria parasite, as well as the researchers who are fighting it.
