  1. Gene clusters of orthologous genes across six malaria parasite species, namely P. falciparum (Pf), P. berghei (Pb), P. chabaudi (Pc), P. yoelii (Py), P. knowlesi (Pk) and P. vivax (Pv). More genes are common to all six species where evidence of rodent malaria parasite (RMP) chromosome matching to P. falciparum syntenic regions is present.
