THIS IS AN INFORMATION RESOURCE
for scientists working in malaria research. It contains a
wide variety of information ranging from sequences to
conference news. The information is freely available to any
Malaria parasites have been with us since the dawn of time. They probably originated in Africa along with mankind. Fossils of mosquitoes up to 30 million years old show that the vector for malaria was present well before Homo sapiens...
Malaria metabolism data base
Maps of the metabolic pathways have been constructed by Hagai Ginsburg of the Hebrew the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The genes involved in the metabolism of Plasmodium falciparum are mapped together with the specific enzymes which are vital to the cellular metabolism. The metabolic maps displayed here show the expressed enzymes in their individual biochemical contexts and also show the cofactors and metabolites participating in the activity of each enzyme. Metabolic information is extracted from the universal metabolic databases and presented in a format suitable to Plasmodium falciparum.

Malaria discussion group
I have established a malaria discussion mailing list over the Internet. This mailing list provides a forum for anyone wishing to ask, advise or communicate on the general subject of malaria.

Hodges Health Career - Care Domains - Model [h2cm]: h2cm is a health and social care model, assisting with assessment, care planning and evaluation. The model has universal applications, and can help engage patients and carers in care and health promotion. The model utilises four domains of knowledge: interpersonal, sociological, political and scientific. Fully referenced, with four links pages - one per care domain.
