  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 (4-, 8- or 12-HPI), “age” refers to gametocyte age (19-, 25-, or 31-h old) and treatment is either TNF-α or control. The null model includes only “mouse” as a random effect
