  1. This table lists the number of FcB1-schizont-ESTs (b) mapped on each of the 14 P. falciparum chromosomes (a), detailing those matching protein coding genes (c), ribosomal loci (d) or telomeric loci (e). The number of protein coding genes covered by the FcB1-schizont-ESTs is indicated in (f), (g, h, i) detailing whether these genes are functionnaly annotated genes (g), putative genes (h) or hypothetical genes (i). Columns (j, k, l) indicate the number of gene models that were confirmed (j), modified (k) or identified as displaying some strain dependent polymorphism between FcB1 and 3D7 (l) after analysis of 3D7-genomic versus FcB1-EST alignments. "Total" corresponds to the total number of cases for the 14 chromosomes, "Unique" accounts for the fact that many ribosomal-RNA-matching ESTs matched both chromosomes 5 and 7 and that the 36 ESTs matching the telomeric end of chromosome 5 also matched the telomeric end of chromosome 13.
