Identification and characterisation of membrane transport proteins

The uptake of nutrients, expulsion of metabolic wastes and maintenance of ion homeostasis by the intraerythrocytic malaria parasite is mediated by membrane transport proteins. Proteins of this type are also implicated in the phenomenon of antimalarial drug resistance (e.g. PfCRT). Yet the original annotation of the malaria parasite genome (Gardner et al.
