An open access platform for comparative analysis of short tandem repeat genotyping data in Plasmodium vivax populations

This paper presents an online tool (vivaxGEN) and standardized methodology to compare parasite populations across multiple endemic settings. VivaxGEN originated within the vivax Working Group of the Asia Pacific Malaria Elimination Network (APMEN) as a platform to facilitate data sharing between countries for a regional overview of parasite transmission within and across borders.
