BACKGROUND Various statistical methods have been developed to describe spatial heterogeneity, in terms of high risk zones. If no source can be determined, this heterogeneity can be globally or locally described. Global methods test a statistic estimated over the whole studied geographical area, whereas local methods estimate a statistic on each spatial unit(More)
It has been previously shown that there are some interethnic differences in susceptibility to malaria between two sympatric ethnic groups of Mali, the Fulani and the Dogon. The lower susceptibility to Plasmodium falciparum malaria seen in the Fulani has not been fully explained by genetic polymorphisms previously known to be associated with malaria(More)

Standard Gibbs energies of formation are of primary importance in the field of biothermodynamics. In the absence of any directly measured values, thermodynamic calculations are required to determine the missing data. For several biochemical species, this study shows that the knowledge of the standard Gibbs energy of formation of the pure compounds (in the(More)
