    Regional sequencing collaboration reveals persistence of the T12 Vibrio cholerae O1 lineage in West Africa

    Eme Ekeng et al.
    The T12 Vibrio cholerae lineage has been continuously circulating in West Africa since at least 2012, highlighting the importance of regional disease control efforts.

    Humans disrupt access to prey for large African carnivores

    Kirby L Mills, Nyeema C Harris
    The presence of humans induces behavioral modifications in many large carnivore and ungulate species, restructuring spatiotemporal relationships between African predators and their prey.

    Admixture into and within sub-Saharan Africa

    George BJ Busby et al.
    Gene flow analysis reveals that the genomes of most sub-Saharan populations are the result of recent historical admixture events.

    Mapping the zoonotic niche of Ebola virus disease in Africa

    David M Pigott et al.
    Understanding where future Ebola virus outbreaks may start and the changing nature of the populations living in these places is of critical importance in helping to prepare for future outbreaks.

    APOL1 renal risk variants have contrasting resistance and susceptibility associations with African trypanosomiasis

    Anneli Cooper et al.
    Common kidney disease risk variants in African populations are associated with reduced susceptibility to deadly African trypanosomes.

    The anti-tubercular drug delamanid as a potential oral treatment for visceral leishmaniasis

    Stephen Patterson et al.
    Biological and pharmacokinetic studies indicate that the anti-tubercular drug, delamanid, could be repurposed for the treatment of visceral leishmaniasis.

    Quantifying the contribution of Plasmodium falciparum malaria to febrile illness amongst African children

    Ursula Dalrymple et al.
    Fevers amongst African children are often assumed to be caused by a malaria infection, but here it is estimated that the majority of fevers amongst African children, including those with a patent malaria infection, are due to infections with diseases other than malaria.

    The Anopheles gambiae 2La chromosome inversion is associated with susceptibility to Plasmodium falciparum in Africa

    Michelle M Riehle et al.
    A common chromosome inversion in African malaria mosquito (Anopheles gambiae) is associated with differences in malaria infection, adult resting behavior and ecology, and may aid the most efficient vectors to evade malaria control.

    Codon usage bias controls mRNA and protein abundance in trypanosomatids

    Laura Jeacock et al.
    Global relative mRNA and protein abundance in trypanosomatids can be effectively estimated at transcriptomic and proteomic scales based on protein-coding sequences alone.
