Next Generation Sequencing Technologies in Malaria

Vathsala Palakkod Govindan and Krishna Murthy P

The research outlook in life sciences is futuristic, thanks to next generation sequencing technologies. With regard to malaria research, use of next generation sequencing techniques, a tool of great value for study of various infectious diseases, have help find multidrug resistance cause of anti-malarial drugs. Earlier efforts toward sequencing of genes were laborious, expensive and time consuming. At present, advancement in the field of next generation sequencing technologies are changing the horizon and promising an era of elevated human health. In this mini review, the present and potential applications of next generation sequencing technologies in malaria research are discussed.
