Project context and summary :

We are working on malaria drug discovery. In an attempt to understand the mode of action of epigenetic inhibitors active against Plasmodium falciparum, we culture the parasite under drug pressure to induce drug resistance, along with a control treated in the same conditions with the solvent only. We then clone resistant and control parasite lines and sequence their genomes to compare them to try to understand which gene is responsible for the resistance and thus may constitute the inhibitor's target (through SNPs, amplification of gene copies).
