Hominid malaria clade divergence and conservation across the Plasmodium genus. For the forty individual genes of the reference set, dN/dS and dS are plotted against mean conservation score for each gene. (a) Fixed differences between P. falciparum and P. reichenowi. (b) Polymorphisms within P. falciparum. (c) dN/dS ratios for fixed differences between P. falciparum and P. reichenowi according to functional group.
