  1. Eight parasites were included in the competitive growth assays. Each line is designated as kelch13 wild-type or mutant sequence, either as a fast clearer (artemisinin-sensitive) or slow clearer (artemisinin-resistant) in patients. In addition, parasite clearance half-life [31], and the date and location for each line is shown [32,33,34]
