TitlePlasmodium falciparum genome sequencing project -Primary submission

The Plasmodium falciparum genome has a total size of 23 Mb, organized in 14 chromosomes. Due to its size and the high AT content, a chromosome-based approach was chosen for the sequencing strategy. The chromosomes from P. falciparum 3D7 were distributed among the sequencing centers that make up the P. falciparum Genome Sequencing Consortium, established in 1996. The sequencing centers involved in this research program are The Sanger Institute, The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) in collaboration with the US Naval Medical Research Center, and the Stanford Genome Technology Center at Stanford University.
