provides an overview of the rapid and significant developments that have occurred in malaria research, including the 2002 genome sequencing of and its mosquito vector, . An important resource for molecular biologists, biochemists, cell biologists, chemists, pathologists, parasitologists, entomologists, and immunologists, is a single reference source that will serve to update teachers, investigators, and public health officials on the status of malaria research.

Written by an international group of bench scientists who are leaders in the field, the book opens with a clearly written introduction to Plasmodium molecular biology, followed by several chapters on its genetics and evolution. The remaining five sections examine the intricate host-parasite relationship through comprehensive coverage of invasion and gamete formation; growth and metabolism; immune invasion; protection mechanisms; and the malaria vector.
