Other 6 Maximal expression during ring/early trophozoite stage, or conflicting stage data PFE1370w, PF11_0111, PF11_0224, PF14_0277, PF14_0359, PF14_0437
  1. aThree parasite samples from each of three patients were compared with 11 in vitro microarray time points with highest correlation to each patient [4].
  2. bLife cycle stages of maximal expression were assigned based on microarray and RNAseq data available from
  3. RPKM: reads per kilobase per million mapped reads.
