Two outlines for mixed model based approaches to quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping in existing maize hybrid selection programs are presented: a restricted maximum likelihood (REML) and a Bayesian Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) approach. The methods use the in-silico-mapping procedure developed by Parisseaux and Bernardo (2004) as a starting point. The(More)
Reproducible growth of gametocytes of Plasmodium falciparum in vitro was obtained from ring-stages taken directly from naturally infected patients and from the same material following storage in liquid nitrogen. Progressive sexual differentiation in vitro was examined for a finite period of 9 days in microcultures and was, for convenience, divided into 5(More)

Asexual erythrocytic parasites of Plasmodium falciparum are killed by chloroquine, whilst mature gametocytes are not. The gametocytes of P. falciparum take 10 days to develop to maturity and their sensitivity to chloroquine during this time was studied in vitro to investigate when the switch from susceptibility to insusceptibility occurred and to compare(More)
