    The year marks the tenth anniversary of the announcement of the genome sequence of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum and that of its mosquito vector Anopheles. The genome sequences were a result of the Plasmodium falciparum Genome Project. This book covers in detail the biology of malaria parasites and the mosquitoes that transmit the disease, how the Genome Project .   Early malaria vaccine research began in the s with a focus on inactivated or killed parasites that failed to generate a protective immune response. The addition of adjuvant systems demonstrated immunogenicity of malaria vaccine candidates in animal models; Jules Freund and colleagues demonstrated partial protection in ducklings.
