The highlights will be:

* Preparation of extracts.

* High through put microtiter plate based SYBR Green fluorescence assay and microscopy to determine IC50 of test samples.

* High through put Heme-Pf Histidine rich protein heme detoxification system based target based assay.

* Antiplasmodial activity guided solvent extraction & RPHPLC purification of promising antimalarial  molecules.      

* Participants may bring those biological samples which are traditionally used to cure malaria in their respective countries.
