  • Apicomplexa (Plasmodium spp.) SNP analysis - ploidy

    Dear All,

    I am learning SNP analysis to be carried out on Plasmodium parasites. These parasites have a diploid state in the mosquito, but are then haploid in the human host. This makes me think I should use diploid settings when analysing samples from human blood (as I should still have both alleles that were in the mosquito). Also, there may be multiclonal infections in the human host --> more than one variant could be in the blood.
    I read a few articles on Plasmodium SNP analysis, but I am not sure which settings were used.

    Has anyone of you already worked with similar organims? Can I ask for a free advice?

    Thanks for your help and attention

    Hi Max,

    I have never done SNP analysis in Plasmodium myself, but I know that Micah Manary at UCSD (Winzeler lab) has been working on this. I'm sure he'll be willing to help you out.

        Best Practices for Single-Cell Sequencing Analysis
        by seqadmin



        While isolating and preparing single cells for sequencing was historically the bottleneck, recent technological advancements have shifted the challenge to data analysis. This highlights the rapidly evolving nature of single-cell sequencing. The inherent complexity of single-cell analysis has intensified with the surge in data volume and the incorporation of diverse and more complex datasets. This article explores the challenges in analysis, examines common pitfalls, offers...
