1001 Developing the Community Project with partners in Mali

Projects:

Locations: Mali (ML)

Partner study description

Abdoulaye Djimde and his colleagues worked with MalariaGEN to collect clinical parasite samples from three sites in Mali: Bamako, the capital, and Kolle and Faladje, rural villages approximately 60km and 80km away. These samples helped form the cornerstone our initial efforts to characterise global Plasmodium genome variation, and contributed to the development of field and lab-based sample handling methods, sequencing approaches, and data analysis pipelines.
