The hidden animation on the cover shows circulating erythrocytes with two cells infected by malaria parasites from the genus Plasmodium. Intracellular parasites acquire nutrients via the plasmodial surface anion channel (PSAC) on the host membrane. In this issue, Nguitragool et al. identify a parasite gene family that is responsible for PSAC, unveiling a key target for future antimalarial drugs. Animation by Anita Mora and Austin Athman (RML, NIAID).
