    Total parasite biomass but not peripheral parasitaemia is associated with endothelial and haematological perturbations in Plasmodium vivax patients

    João L Silva-Filho et al.
    Data exploring host and parasite signatures in the peripheral blood indicate that total parasite biomass is a better predictor of P. vivax-induced host responses and pathogenesis than peripheral parasitemia.

    Identifying Plasmodium falciparum transmission patterns through parasite prevalence and entomological inoculation rate

    Benjamin Amoah et al.
    Estimating fine-scale spatiotemporal patterns of Plasmodium falciparum transmission showed an association between entomological inoculation rate and parasite prevalence that emphasizes the value of both measures in malaria surveillance.

    Mosquito infection by gametocytes from cultures exposed to dihydroartemisinin (DHA) from Figure 2, Portugaliza et al.

    Malaria: A Collection of Articles

    Edited by Olivier Silvie et al.
    eLife has recently published a wide range of papers on malaria, covering a diversity of themes including parasite biology, epidemiology, immunology, drugs and vaccines.

    Deep evolutionary origin of gamete-directed zygote activation by KNOX/BELL transcription factors in green plants

    Tetsuya Hisanaga et al.
    Gamete-derived three-amino-acid-loop-extension homeodomain proteins activate zygote development in a strikingly similar manner between basal land plants and green algae, indicating an ancestral role of these transcription factors in green plants.

    Gamete expression of TALE class HD genes activates the diploid sporophyte program in Marchantia polymorpha

    Tom Dierschke et al.
    The ancestral mechanism to activate diploid gene expression via homeodomain transcription factors was retained in liverworts, an early diverging land plant lineage, and subsequently co-opted during evolution of the diploid sporophyte body.

    Common virulence gene expression in adult first-time infected malaria patients and severe cases

    J Stephan Wichers et al.
    Parasites with pathogenic variant surface antigens are common in adult malaria patients with a naive immune status.

    Converting endogenous genes of the malaria mosquito into simple non-autonomous gene drives for population replacement

    Astrid Hoermann et al.
    Minimal genetic modifications of endogenous mosquito genes allow the tissue-specific expression of anti-malarial effectors and convert them into efficient non-autonomous gene drives.

    Inducible mechanisms of disease tolerance provide an alternative strategy of acquired immunity to malaria

    Wiebke Nahrendorf et al.
    Malaria remodels the spleen to imprint tolerance and reduce pathology in subsequent infections.

    Epigenetic reprogramming rewires transcription during the alternation of generations in Arabidopsis

    Michael Borg et al.
    Epigenetic reprogramming of the distinct repressive marks H3K27me3 or H3K9me2 guides the transition between the haploid and diploid life forms that encompass the life cycle of land plants.

    PRDM9 activity depends on HELLS and promotes local 5-hydroxymethylcytosine enrichment

    Yukiko Imai et al.
    Biochemical and genetic approaches uncover a chromatin remodeler for PRDM9 binding and the parallel local epigenetic modification of cytosines in mouse spermatocytes.
