  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). In contrast to genes found in syntenic regions (Table 1) significantly less genes are common in P. falciparum species specific coding regions.
