Big Data To The Rescue Of Malaria – Why Do Some People Get Infected But Not Sick?

In recent years, the study of human immunology has been fostered by the development and rapid advances of high throughput technologies used to profile genetic, transcriptional, translational, and metabolic phenotypes during good health and disease. They have been particularly important because many of the standard manipulations using animal models are not suited for human research due ethical considerations. Therefore, methodologies such as genome-wide gene expression profiling (transcriptomics) and global metabolite screening (metabolomics) offer rich information from often limited clinical samples,...
