From: Quantitative trait locus analysis of parasite density reveals that HbS gene carriage protects severe malaria patients against Plasmodium falciparum hyperparasitaemia

Fig. 4

Parasitaemia distribution stratified by HbS genotype. Plot represents parasite densities only in the sub-set of severe malaria patients (cerebral malaria, severe anaemia and hyperparasitaemia). HbS genotypes are represented heterozygous (AT) and non-carriers (AA). Parasite density represents the number of parasitized erythrocytes/microscopic field. Data are represented in boxes that include 50 % of sample distributions (2nd and 3rd quartiles) with horizontal lines (median) and outliers are represented by circles
