ⓘ Plasmodium reichenowi

Plasmodium reichenowi is classified into the subgenus Laverania. It is a chimpanzee malaria parasite that is evolutionarily related to the human malaria parasite P. falciparum. P. reichenowi and P. falciparum are phylogenetically close to each other. A high-quality reference genome for P. reichenowi was produced from Illumina reads using de novo assembly and post hoc improvement. Excluding the subtelomeres, the genome is almost completely co-linear with P. falciparum and share almost identical gene content emphasizing their recent shared ancestry. The vast majority of these approximately 5.000 core’ genes are common to both parasites, with only three genes present in P. reichenowi that are missing in P. falciparum and only one in P. falciparum that is absent from P. reichenowi.
