The nuclear genome of the rodent malaria parasite P. chabaudi AS is 18.8 Mb in size, with a karyotype of 14 chromosomes. The G+C content is approximately 23%.
Whole genome shotgun sequencing has continued to 8x coverage. The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute plans on publishing the completed and annotated sequences of P. chabaudi AS in a peer-reviewed journal as soon as possible. Permission of the principal investigator should be obtained before publishing analyses of the sequence/open reading frames/genes on a chromosome or genome scale.
