In this paper, scientists generated a new reference genome and a manually curated draft assembly for two Plasmodium species. This effort made it possible to resolve discrepancies in the Plasmodium phylogeny and indicates host-specific adaptations as the organism entered new species. Sequencing of P. malariae was performed on PacBio after size selection with BluePippin.
