  1. Doubling times for mutant parasite clones were estimated using their respective best-fit growth curves (See Fig. S1 in Additional file 2). Simple two-tailed t-test was then used to test the significance of differences in doubling time of mutant clones with wild type (WT) P. falciparum clones (average of three NF54 clones) as the reference. Significant P values, based on alpha = 0.05, are highlighted in bold.
