Welcome to PlasmoGEM

The Plasmodium Genetic Modification Project

The PlasmoGEM project produces and distributes free tools for the genetic manipulation of malaria parasites for research purposes.

Our efforts are initially focused on providing DNA vectors for the targeted manipulation of P. berghei, a malaria parasite infecting rodents.

There are two sections of our database: search for available vectors or view and analyse blood-stage growth phenotypes, generated with our constructs. Click one of the buttons below to go to the respective entry page:

PlasmoGEM is a not-for-profit, open access research resource funded by the Wellcome Trust and is part of the Malaria Programme at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, UK.
