Plasmodium chabaudi Assembly and Gene Annotation

About the Plasmodium chabaudi genome

Plasmodium chabaudi is one of four malarial parasites that infect rodents. The nuclear genome of the rodent malaria parasite


P. chabaudi is 18.8 Mb in sizewith a karyotype of 14 chromosomes. The G+C content is approximately 23%.


Annotation of the P. chabaudi AS genome is provided by GeneDB where the latest sequence dataand annotation is constantly updated. Periodic releases are also available from PlasmoDB. hosts genomic and proteomic data (and more) for different species of the parasite eukaryote Plasmodium. It brings together data provided by numerous laboratories worldwide.
