Abstract

If parasite genotype influences the clinical course of malaria, we expect that isolates from patients with similar pathology would be more closely related than would be expected by chance. To explore this prediction, we typed nine microsatellite markers in sympatric Plasmodium falciparum isolates from cerebral and uncomplicated malaria patients from Vietnam. Temporal structure and linkage disequilibrium were also examined in this data set.
