Light shed on what European malaria was like, 50 years after its eradication
A work led by the Institute of Evolutionary Biology, recovers DNA from two strains of malaria from old samples from the Ebro Delta in Spain. The results reveal the origins of P. vivax and P. falciparum, and help us comprehend the mutations which have become resistant to numerous drugs.
