Videos and podcasts icon

We have a number of videos that explain the principles of genetics and resistance to control measures. They are a lay summary of how resistance can emerge, what genetic variation is and how genetics can be used to power malaria control decision making.

Animations

How does insecticide resistance happen? 

Focusing on how natural selection drives insecticide resistance relating to malaria and how genetic monitoring of mosquito populations can help inform us. Led by Dr George Busby and Dr Vikki Cornelius (now Simpson). Animation by Lottie Kingslake.

What can genetics tell us about Malaria?

A simple animation focusing on variation, inheritance and genetic mutation using the malaria parasite as an example. Led by Dr George Busby and Dr Vikki Cornelius (now Simpson). Animation by Lottie Kingslake.

Malaria Drug Resistance and Genomics

Learn how DNA sequencing technologies are being used to better understand drug resistant malaria parasites, and to track and contain them before they spread. Led by Steve Pritchard and Rachel Giacomantonio. Animation by Laura Hart.

Genetic resistance to malaria

Learn how variations in DNA in some regions of the human genome can help protect people from developing severe malaria. Led by Steve Pritchard, Rachel Giacomantonio and Dr Kirk Rockett. Animation by Laura Hart.

Podcasts

We have also started a podcast series which we host on our YouTube channel. If you would like to suggest topic or question for a podcast email support [at] malarigen.net
