Competitive suppression in mixed-clone parasite cultures.

Abstract

Mixed-genotype infections occur frequently in natural populations. Parasite genotypes are expected to interact within a host: competing for shared nutrients and being affected by the host's immune response to each other. Theoretically, competing parasites can be expected to exhibit increased rates of replication. Here, we investigate whether interactions… (More)
