  1. This table, derived from Additional file 1, lists the 21 P. falciparum genes for which some protein polymorphism was identified between FcB1 and 3D7 strains. Columns (a) to (e) are as described in the Table 3 legend. The last column (f) details the various cases. All protein sequence alignments are illustrated in Additional file 5.
