P. gallinaceum is an avian malaria parasite. It is phylogenetically closer to P. falciparum than many other malaria species and became popular as model due to the large size of its non-primate host.
A low coverage (3x) draft genome sequence has been produced using Sanger sequencing from genomic DNA provided by Thomas McCutchan (NIH/NIAID) and Joseph Vinetz (UCSD). With further DNA from Vinetz, an annotated high quality draft genome is being produced using Illumina Sequence-by-synthesis. These data are unpublished. Please refer to Data Use Statement.

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.
