Figure 1

Recombination events and 7G8 allele frequency along each of the 14 P. falciparum chromosomes. Each panel represents one chromosome as marked (chr). Recombination events (black vertical lines) are the number of changes in inheritance pattern (parental allelic type) between two adjacent markers among 32 progeny, and 7G8 allele frequency is the proportion of 7G8 alleles among the 7G8 × GB4 progeny (red curves). The arrowheads under each panel indicate the positions of putative centromeres for the 14 chromosomes according to [11]. The dashed horizontal lines delimit the significant inheritance bias from 1:1 segregation.
