Malaria Lifecycle Part 2: Mosquito Host

An accurate visualisation of the complete Malaria lifecycle, derived from scientific data sets, microscopy and published literature on the parasite’s biology. Everything presented is accurate in scale, structure, and dynamic behaviour of mosquito, parasites and human cells. The sequence visualises the parasite infection inside a pregnant female mosquito. The camera follows the parasite as it has sex inside the mosquito’s stomach, then invades her salivary glands.
