Plasmodium cynomolgi

Plasmodium cynomolgi is a non-human primate malaria parasite that naturally infects various macaque. This species is used as a model for human P. vivax infections. It is phylogenetically close to P. vivax and shares important biological features including the dormant liver form (hypnozoite) with this parasite.

In collaboration with Dr. Clemens Kocken, Prof. Alan Thomas and Dr. Erica Pasini (BPRC, Rijswijk), we have produced a draft genome from the M strain of P. cynomolgi using Illumina Sequence-by-synthesis technology.

Data Use Statement

This sequencing centre plans on publishing the completed and annotated sequences in a peer-reviewed journal as soon as possible. Permission of the principal investigator should be obtained before publishing analyses of the sequence/open reading frames/genes on a chromosome or genome scale. See our data sharing policy.
