Malarial genetic resistance

Malarial genetic resistance is an inherited change in the genome of an organism that confers a selective survival advantage due to conferring or increasing resistance to disease.

In malaria, an infection of the erythrocytes (red blood cells), the genetic change is an alteration of the hemoglobin molecule or cellular proteins or enzymes of erythrocytes that inhibits invasion by or replication of Plasmodia, the microorganisms that cause the disease.
