Table 5 Estimates of multilocus linkage disequilibrium (LD) for baseline and post-ITN parasite populations

From: Effects of transmission reduction by insecticide-treated bed nets (ITNs) on parasite genetics population structure: I. The genetic diversity of Plasmodium falciparum parasites by microsatellite markers in western Kenya

Test factor Baseline population Post-ITN population
VD 1.2089 1.1825
Ve 1.0873 1.1802
I S A 0.0160 0.0003
Testing (H 0 : V D = V e )   
Var (VD) 0.0021 0.002
p < 0.05 0.01 0.57
  1. Multilocus LD for all eight microsatellites markers examined before and after ITN intervention respectively. P-values shown are derived from Monte Carlo simulation methods for IS A showing levels of significant departure from 0 for each parasite population.
