Revival of 50,000-Year-Old Gene Reveals How Deadliest Malaria Parasite Jumped From Gorillas to Humans

News

In a study published today in PLOS Biology, researchers from the Wellcome Sanger Institute and the University of Montpellier have reconstructed a ~50,000-year-old gene sequence acquired by the ancestor of Plasmodium falciparum. The acquisition of the gene sequence enabled the parasite to infect human red blood cells.
