Since 2008, I have been involved in the adaptation and optimisation of a recombineering based method for the generation of gene targeting vectors for the rodent malaria parasite Plasmodium berghei. This technology now forms the basis of the gene targeting vector pipeline that underpins the Plasmodium genetic modification (PlasmoGEM) project (http://plasmogem.sanger.ac.uk/). Within the PlasmoGEM team I continue to work on technology development, vector production and Plasmodium genomic library generation. In the last couple of years, I have been involved in the generation of artificial chromosome (AC) for P.berghei and P.falciparum. Recently, our home made genomic library based on P.Berghei AC became available as complementation resource on PlasmoGEM.
