Life cycle of the malaria parasite
Johns Hopkins scientists used CRISPR/Cas9 system to delete a single gene from mosquitoes to make them highly resistant to the malaria parasite and thus much less likely to transmit the parasite to humans, according to a new paper. : science
Colorized electron micrograph of red blood cell infected with malaria parasites (blue). The small bumps on the infected cell show how the parasite remodels its host cell. Uninfected cells (red) have smoother surfaces.
