About the collaboration
The sequence data used in this analysis were generated by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and contributed to the P. vivax Genome Variation project by several independent research groups. The P. vivax Genome Variation project aims to understand genome diversity of this parasite that, because it can remain dormant in the liver for years, is particularly hard to eliminate using conventional malaria control measures.
