The first CDC Ebola Safety Training Course starts on Oct 6, 2014 and the schedule currently extends through the end of this year. The courses are open to healthcare workers from all over the world and are being offered free of charge, but participants are responsible for paying for their own travel to the course in Alabama.

Plasmodium falciparum parasites that are resistant to artemisinins have been detected in Southeast Asia. Resistance is associated with several polymorphisms in the parasite's K13-propeller gene. The molecular epidemiology of these artemisinin-resistant genotypes in African parasite populations is unknown. We developed an assay to quantify rare polymorphisms in parasite populations using a pooled deep-sequencing approach to score allele frequencies, validated it using mixtures of laboratory parasite strains, and then employed it to screen over 1,100 African P. falciparum infections collected since 2002 from 14 sites across sub-Saharan Africa.
