Evolution Of Malaria Parasite And The Expansion Of Antigenic Gene Families In The Plasmodium Falciparum
Here, we analyse the antigenic gene families located in the whole genomes of Plasmodium falciparum. The genes of P. falciparum play very essential role in host cell modification by expressing on the surface of infected red blood cells. These antigenic gene families are rapidly evolving but the understanding on their evolutionary pattern is still limited. Here, we are trying to find out the pattern of differential evolution of all three gene families by identifying footprints of evolutionary process that have occurred in these gene families.
