1046 Developing the Plasmodium vivax Genome Variation project with partners in Brazil


Locations: Brazil (BR)

Partner study description

Marcelo Ferreira and colleagues contributed to the early stages of the MalariaGEN Plasmodium vivax Genome Variation project by providing samples that were not themselves the basis of a partner study, but were used in establishing our laboratory and analytical pipelines. For example, some samples were used to analyse early Illumina sequencing outputs or for preliminary analysis of population structure.
