Sanger Institute Malaria Programme
The Institute’s Malaria Programme uses genomic, genetic and proteomic approaches to tackle fundamental questions in malaria biology and to discover host-parasite interactions that are critical for drug and vaccine development.
The programme has recently expanded from its long-standing leadership role in Plasmodium genome sequencing to incorporate large-scale field and lab studies, and is a key part of the Institute's research in pathogen genetics.
