  1. aParasite population within a sample as determined by MSP1 and MSP2 family specific PCR. Two samples which failed msp2 genotyping PCR yielded products in msp1 genotyping and as such there were 86 samples common to both genotyping procedures. The numbers in brackets represents the total number of samples in group
