NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Effective vaccination against malaria could saves hundreds of thousands of lives each year, particularly among children in sub-Saharan Africa. An existing malaria vaccine does not provide full protection, but a research team at the University of Maryland hopes to change that.

In collaboration with vaccine developer Sanaria, the team will conduct a sequencing-based genome-wide study on samples from vaccine trials to discover loci yielding protection against the deadly disease.
