Sequencing of Plasmodium genus-specific mitochondrial PCR products reveals polymorphisms consequently identifying malaria species. Sequencing of the genus-specific mitochondrial PCR products, employing primers PgMt19 F3&B3 [21], gave high-quality sequences of full length. Run through BLAST the results showed that the four species were distinguished by two to six single nucleotide polymorphisms and one insert/deletion consequently allowing sequencing to be used as an alternative species-specific determination method in our cohort.
