 * MOI = mean multiplicity of infection
 ** H_{E} = expected heterozygosity. This is defined as the probability that two randomly chosen alleles are different in the population.
 *** The combined probability that two independent clones share the same genotype for both marker genes was calculated by multiplying the probabilities P for both marker genes.
 ^{§} Indicates significant difference between mean MOI of msp1 and msp2 (p < 0.001)
