In this week's Science, how the periwinkle produces vinblastine, and IDing P. falciparum genes.

Saturation mutagenesis of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum identified almost 2,700 essential genes during the blood stage of infection.

By sequencing and characterizing the genome of Artemisia annua, researchers uncovered gene expansions and regulatory features linked to artemisinin production.

Researchers have done single-cell RNA sequencing on hundreds of Plasmodium falciparum or P. berghei isolates to track gene activity involved in infection cycles.
