Genetic architecture of artemisinin-resistant Plasmodium falciparum

Reports on a large multicenter genome-wide association study of Plasmodium falciparum resistance to artemisinin

Abstract

The study took place across 15 locations in Southeast Asia. Its findings indicate that the risk of new resistance-causing mutations emerging is determined by specific genetic factors in the parasite population.
