Molecular Biology and Immune Evasion

This session covers the molecular biology and biochemistry of parasitic protozoa and helminths and their interactions with both the definitive and intermediate host. The main subject areas covered are:

•The structure, biosynthesis, degradation, properties and function of DNA, RNA, proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and small molecular-weight substances

• Intermediary metabolism and bioenergetics

• Drug target characterization and the mode of action of antiparasitic drugs

• Molecular and biochemical aspects of membrane structure and function

• Host-parasite relationships that focus on the parasite, particularly as related to specific parasite molecules.

• Analysis of genes and genome structure, function and expression

• Analysis of variation in parasite populations relevant to genetic exchange.
