GCID Parasite Projects

Human parasites cause some of the most important infectious diseases worldwide (e.g. malaria), and infect millions of individuals each year within the US (e.g. toxoplasma). Despite the availability of several reference sequences for parasite genomes, we have a very limited understanding of the mechanisms by which parasites infect and persist within their human hosts. This project will exploit current high-throughput sequencing technologies and bioinformatics techniques to provide novel insights to parasitic infectious diseases.
