Malaria Genome Project - Plasmodium falciparum
The sequencing of Plasmodium falciparum chromosome 12 (clone 3D7) began in 1997 and was successfully completed in 2002 with a publication in Nature.
Funding for the work was provided by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund .
The Malaria Genome Sequencing Consortium
This work was done as part of the Malaria Genome Sequencing Consortium. Sequencing was separated by chromosome among three centers:
Ron W. Davis
Richard W. Hyman
All of the genome sequence data generated within the Malaria Genome Consortium is available at PlasmoDB
. The data have also been deposited in the major databases. The chromosome 12 sequence has been submitted to GenBank, accession number AE014188. P. falciparumP. falciparum
