  1. The response variable for each model is the square root-transformed gametocyte density and the random effect is “mouse”. “Samp.time” refers to sampling time (2- or 12-HPI), “inj.time” refers to injection time (ZT0 or ZT12 respectively), and treatment is either TNF-α or control. The null model includes only “mouse” as a random effect
