Complex infections in vivax malaria: the more you look, the more you find.

Barry AE


The human malaria parasite Plasmodium vivax commonly causes complex multiclonal infections. Recently, Dia et al. have developed innovative methods for single-cell sequencing (SCS) of P. vivax infections by adapting an approach used previously for Plasmodium falciparum. Their studies provide fascinating new insights into P. vivax intrahost diversity and evolution.
