Abstract:We have analysed the whole mitochondrial (mt) genome sequences (each
~6 kilo nucleotide base pairs in length) of four field isolates of the malaria
parasite Plasmodium falciparum collected from different locations
in India. Comparative genomic analyses of mt genome sequences
revealed three novel India-specific single nucleotide polymorphisms. In general, high
mt genome diversity was found in Indian P.
falciparum, at a level comparable to African isolates. A population
phylogenetic tree placed the presently seq…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
