    00:01 Hello and welcome to Parasites: Plasmodium. We’re going to be going a bit deeper into diseases caused by several individual types of parasites. And after you've watched this lecture, you will know that the four different strains of human malaria parasites are transmitted by mosquitoes. You will be familiar with the Plasmodium lifecycle, both in the mosquito and in humans, and you’ll understand how to prevent and treat malaria.

    00:36 Just to remind you, protozoa are single celled eukaryotes and we’re going to be talking about protozoan parasites in the next few lectures, and these include the Plasmodium species, the causative agents of malaria.
