11 Sept 2012: The Malaria Programme at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is carrying out research addressing questions about the continuing emergence of drug resistance in malaria. Knowing which proteins in a cell are palmitoylated, specific protein-membrane interactions, can give important clues about their regulation or function—clues that can be used to piece together new ideas about how cells work.
