Project context and summary :

In the TSARA project, we aim at developing and validating a molecular platform (Dual Index Targeted Amplicon Deep Sequencing on Illumina iSeq) and a dedicated bioinformatics pipeline for targeted high throughput sequencing of genetic loci related to antimalarial drug resistance. The iSeq Illumina platform, proposed here, is designed for dual indexing of samples, consisting of a 3’ and 5’ individual barcode, which allows the user to connect every sequence generated to a specific sample (up to 384 samples). The development and the validation of this novel molecular tool will be performed at IP Paris first by using DNA extracted from P. falciparum reference strains (3D7, Dd2 and culture-adapted Cambodian strains) (WP1) and second, by using P. falciparum DBS samples collected from two malaria-endemic areas (The central African Republic and Cameroon) (WP2). In the WP3, we will host and train staff from IP Bangui and CP Cameroon to this new approach. Our final objective is that Dual Index Targeted Amplicon Deep Sequencing on iSeq along with minimal bioinformatics infrastructure operated in countries that are endemic for malaria to facilitate routine large-scale surveillance of the emergence of drug resistance and to ensure the continued success of the malaria treatment policy
