Malaria remains a considerable public health burden in many parts of the world. It is caused by Plasmodium parasites, which are transmitted by mosquitoes and undergo complex developmental cycles in both the insect vector and vertebrate hosts. Malaria research has greatly benefited from technological advances in genetic engineering, next-generation sequencing and structural biology, providing new insights into parasite development and transmission, and host-parasite interactions.
This collection highlights an assembly of important papers representative of multidisciplinary malaria research, delving into fundamental questions concerning the biology of the parasite at cellular, molecular and structural levels, malaria transmission and pathogenesis, drug resistance and vaccine development.
