1093 Population genetics of Plasmodium falciparum parasites in South-Western Cameroon

Location: Cameroon (CM).


Partner study description

Tobias Apinjoh is using whole genome sequencing to investigate the genetic diversity present in natural populations of Plasmodium falciparum parasites collected in different micro-ecological zones along the slope of Mount Cameroon in the South-Western region. This study examines the genetic structure of these parasite populations including looking for signatures of natural selection. This study is contributing to the Plasmodium Diversity Network Africa (PDNA), an African-led network investigating the genetic diversity and drug resistance of Plasmodium parasites across Africa.
