Project description:This project contains RNA-sequencing reads of Plasmodium vivax derived directly from clinical patients. Here, we aim to characterize the gene expression patterns in patients with various parasite compositions. Patients (n=10) were recruited from two malaria endemic areas in Thailand. Ten RNA samples were treated with DNase, followed by Epicentre Globin-Zero Gold kit to deplete rRNA and globin transcript. The RNA-seq libraries were sequenced on an Illumina HiSeq4000 platform to generate approximately 60 million paired-end reads of 150 bp for each sample.
