Genomics for Malaria Elimination and Eradication: Using principles of evolution to guide, interpret and evaluate intervention strategies

Genomics for Malaria Elimination and Eradication: Using principles of evolution to guide, interpret and evaluate intervention strategies

Objectives

This project will develop, validate, and integrate genomic tools and data into actionable information for malaria control and elimination decision-making in priority regions. The primary outcome is increased use of genomic tools and/or data by NMCPs and other partners to inform decision making and guide operational efforts. The two intermediate outcomes are the validation of new genomic and modeling tools in different geographies and increased local and regional awareness and capacity to generate and analyze genomic data.
