Comparison of Cy3 fluorescence emitted by microarrays hybridized with assemblage A and B trophozoite cDNA. Fluorescence values are means of two replicate microarray spots and are ranked in order of decreasing intensity, as in Figure 1. All datasets are biologically independent; the 3-digit microarray number is shown in the legend. Fluorescence and rank are plotted on a log scale. Isolate WB (red lines) is assemblage A, isolate GS (green line) assemblage B.
