The Malaria Genomic Epidemiology Network (MalariaGEN) is an international community of researchers working to understand how genetic variation in humans,Plasmodium parasites, and Anopheles mosquitoes affects the biology and epidemiology of malaria, and using this knowledge to develop more effective ways to control the disease.

MalariaGEN is a scientific network that connects researchers and clinicians in malaria-endemic countries with cutting-edge DNA sequencing technologies and genomic research.

Through a number of multi-centre projects, we provide a framework for generating, integrating and sharing genetic and genomic data, and for investigating key questions about malaria biology and epidemiology. Learn more about how genomics can help to defeat malaria.

The network is coordinated by the MalariaGEN Resource Centre whose members are based primarily at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics at the University of Oxford and at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute on the Wellcome Genome Campus.
