  1. This table, derived from Additional file 1, lists the 26 P. falciparum genes whose gene models were confirmed by FcB1-schizont-ESTs. The first 4 columns were downloaded from PlasmoDB version 5.3 and correspond respectively to: gene accession numbers in PlasmoDB (a), their current description in PlasmoDB (b), the maximum expression time during the erythrocytic cycle according to the transcriptomic data of [17, 19] (c) and the maximum expression stage according to the transcriptomic data of [18] (d). Column (e) indicates the number of ESTs corresponding to each gene and isolated in this study. Column (f) details the genetic elements that were confirmed. Asterisks (*) in this last column refer to examples illustrated in Additional file 3. Pf-iRBC, P. falciparum-infected red blood cells.
