Aren’t mosquito bites just the worst? No, I correct myself—contracting malaria from mosquito bites is the worst! Well, hey—don’t blame the mosquito. We should be focused on the parasite, Mr. Plasmodium falciparum. Many scientists are, in fact, entirely focused on Plasmodium falciparum, and the WHO/TDR Malaria Database is a wonderful online resource for malaria researchers. The site includes a malaria metabolism database, nucleotide and protein data files, and a malaria discussion group, among other resources. The WHO/TDR Malaria Database provides a number of tools that will undoubtedly help researchers move closer to putting an end to the pernicious Plasmodium once and for all! (Next up on the agenda: how to assuage that most annoying itching sensation.)
