Brief description Molecular studies to map malaria parasite populations are essential for planning and maintaining malaria control in at risk areas. We will develop molecular tools to map malaria parasite populations in Papua New Guinea at high resolution. We will then investigate whether these tools can be used to pinpoint the source of infections in regions where malaria is normally absent. The project will provide valuable information to help focus malaria control efforts to areas where they will be most effective.
