Plasmodium falciparum malaria: identification of new resistance factors across the 5q31-33 genomic region in sub-saharan populations

Objective

I will perform linkage disequilibria mapping of malaria resistance genes in the West African population, focusing on the genomic region 5q31-33 which contains many immune genes and shows genetic linkage to malaria susceptibility.
