The Botanical Solution for Malaria

Artemisinin, a compound found in the leaves of the plant Artemisia annua, is the most effective drug for treatment of malaria. Production of a sufficient amount of artemisinin to meet world demand has been a major problem. This perspective describes a new genetic map of Artemisia annua, which identifies key loci. Knowledge gained from the reporting of this new map is expected to result in increased agricultural yield.
