A proportional (branch-lengths are not informative) maximum-likelihood phylogeny of amino acid sequences of all DBLα sequences for var genes in P. falciparum isolates 3D7 (PF and MAL, red circles) and HB3 (green circles), and P. reichenowi (Pr, blue circles), including the DBLα region used for reference in this study (DBLa_Su black circles). The tree is a consensus of 1000 bootstrapped replicates, showing only nodes represented in ≥ 70% of the replicate trees.
