The 21 training sets, ordered by peak PfPR. The PfPR data (black) have been plotted against the root of age in years, along with the confidence limits by the exact test for each proportion (grey). The maximum likelihood best-fit for the modified Pull & Grab model (orange) was also plotted; the plateau (horizontal dashed red line) and the age when PfPR begins to decline (vertical dashed red line) are indicated and the other fitted parameters are reported on each graph. The algorithm (blue) fitted to the data (i.e. four parameters were fixed at their trimmed mean values and the fifth parameter was fitted).
