A case of ‘hit-and-run’ in Plasmodium genetics
The ability to genetically manipulate species of the genus Plasmodium, some of which are causative organisms of malaria, has seen significant advances in the past 13 years. However, one major tool that has been lacking is the ability to undertake reverse genetics and 'hit-and-run' mutagenesis. This deficiency has been addressed in the Plasmodium berghei model.
