Is there a difference between sites ME and LB which are located on the same river and relatively geographically close?
We decided on ME and LB which are in the same species and geo location. We used all of the unique sequences in the species (12 in total). Ran the workflow.
Summary of results: there were no significant differences between the sites. There were no groups separated along the data. It may suggest that the plasmodium populations are consistent along the sites near the river.
Additional information: Movement habits and relationships of the chimps at these sites. Mosquito populations and movements. These would help to answer why there are similarities between the two groups even though the distance between sites.
