Table 2 Comparison of different estimates of recombination events between all five study areas

From: Sequence diversity and natural selection at domain I of the apical membrane antigen 1 among Indian Plasmodium falciparum populations

Regions Ra Rb Rm
Assam (n = 28) 0.178 81 9
Orissa (n = 35) 0.118 53.7 11
A & N (n = 40) 0.057 26 7
UP (n = 36) 0.016 7.5 8
Goa (n = 18) 0.074 33.7 6
Total (n = 157) 0.123 56.2 12
  1. Note: The R and Rm were estimated excluding the sites containing alignment gaps or those segregating for three nucleotides. The R was computed using R = 4Nr, where N is the population size and r is the recombination rate per sequence (per gene) n, number of isolates; Ra, recombination parameter between adjacent sites; Rb, recombination parameter for entire gene; Rm, minimum number of recombination events between adjacent sites
