Cracking the Code of the Malaria Parasite May Help Stop Transmission
To get a clear picture of how the parasite manipulates its host - the human red blood cell - an international, multidisciplinary team of life scientists, mathematicians and engineers have used advanced imaging technology coupled with computationally efficient coarse-grained modelling to understand how the sexual blood stage of the parasite transforms its own structure.
