Dr Ulrike Böhme | Plasmodium Curator

Böhme, Ulrike

Ulrike is currently working on the manual annotation and curation of Plasmodium reference genomes. Based on experimental data described in the scientific literature and user comments submitted by the malaria community the annotation is being continuously improved. The curated genomes can be viewed in GeneDB.
