Bootstrapped phylogenetic rooted tree constructed by the parsimony method for the SSUr RNA sequences of Plasmodium vivax from Mali. Horizontal branch lengths between nodes correspond to the number of shared derived changes. Slide52-72_clone1-3 represent the slide from Mali were we obtained the gDNA and the number of clone that was sequenced. SlideBrazil, positive P. vivax control. 18S_PVX samples were obtained from PlasmoDB 8.2. Other Plasmodium spp. 18S sequences were obtained from GenBank. Accession Numbers for all of them are listed in Methods.
