Table 5 Genetic diversity of msp1, msp2 and glurp measured as expected heterozygosity (HE)

From: Plasmodium falciparum msp1, msp2 and glurp allele frequency and diversity in sub-Saharan Africa

HE= [n/(n-1)] [(1-∑Pi2)]
  Malawi Burkina Faso São Tomé Tanzania Uganda
msp2 0.97 0.98 0.96 0.99 0.95
msp1 0.79 0.78 0.83 0.84 0.68
glurp 0.89 0.91 0.91 0.92 0.88
