MalariaGEN has produced some animations that explain some of the fundamental principles of genetics, resistance to control measures and to explain some of the outcomes of our projects.
They are intended as a lay summary with visualisations that can help for form a foundation on which to build knowledge in the area how resistance can emerge, what is genetic variation and how can genetics be used to power malaria control decision making.
Focusing on how natural selection drives insecticide resistance relating to malaria and how genetic monitoring of mosquito populations can help inform us. Led by Dr George Busby and Dr Vikki Cornelius (now Simpson). Animation by Lottie Kingslake.
A simple animation focusing on variation, inheritance and genetic mutation using the malaria parasite as an example. Led by Dr George Busby and Dr Vikki Cornelius (now Simpson). Animation by Lottie Kingslake.
