Evolutionary analyses of the major variant surface antigen-encoding genes reveal population structure of Plasmodium falciparum within and between continents

We described population structure at of the highly diverse genes encoding the immunodominant surface antigen of P. falciparum at the global scale. This work was chosen by the PLOS Genetics editors to be featured with an accompanying Perspectives piece.
