Fig. 3

Box-plots of percentage invasion inhibition, stratified by country and gender. The invasion inhibition potential was estimated by a standard invasion inhibition assay using Plasmodium falciparum strain 3D7 and readout by flow cytometry after staining of the parasites with ethidium bromide. Groups were compared using non-parametric Kruskal–Wallis test. There was no statistically significant difference between the median invasion inhibition of the Ghanaians in comparison to the Malagasy, and the males in comparison to the females. The lower and upper margins of the box represent the 25th and 75th percentiles, and the extended arms represent the 10th and 90th percentiles. The median is shown as the horizontal line within each box
