Plasmodium vivax (ASM241v2)

About the Plasmodium vivax genome

Plasmodium vivax is one of four species of malarial parasite of humans transmitted by the Anopheles mosquito, and the most common cause of recurring malaria. Infections are seldom fatal. The genome is 22 MB in size; the GC content is 45% (unlike some other Plasmodia sequences, which have notably low GC content); and about 5000 genes have been predicted.
