Percentage of isolates of cluster-group and unique based on PfRh2b polymorphism in Thiès. Scheme showing the association between the polymorphism of PfRh2b gene and specific barcode of parasite. “Haplotype clusters” which had n = 4 samples were represented. Haplotype cluster 55; 10; 65; 8; 12; 16 and 4 had only the deletion of PfRh2b gene (Blue pie chart); Haplotype cluster 64; 5; 11; 6 and 17 had only the full-length fragment (orange pie chart). The remaining (Haplotype cluster 24; 31; 98; 26; 66; 18 and 29) were parasites having deletion and full-length alleles. The last pie chart (with n = 338) represented the parasites with unique barcode. Del, deletion; Full, full-length sequence; n, number of isolates
