Antimalarial drug resistance profiling of Plasmodium falciparum infections in Ghana using molecular inversion probes and next generation sequencing

Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy

Benedicta A MensahAnita Ghansah

Abstract

A key drawback to monitoring the emergence and spread of antimalarial drug resistance in sub-Saharan Africa is early detection and containment. Next-generation sequencing methods offer the resolution, sensitivity and scale required to fill this gap by surveilling for molecular markers o...read more
