Evolutionary rate (ω) sliding window. Intra-species ω values (dN/dS) are represented in blue whilst inter-species ω values (KN/KS between P. vivax and malarial parasites infecting primates) are shown in purple. A ω value equal 1 means neutral evolution, ω < 1 negative selection whilst ω > 1 means positive selection. A diagram of the gene can be observed below the sliding window. Negatively selected inter-species codons are shown in green whilst positively selected sites are shown in red. Numbering is based on the alignment in Additional file 1: Figure S1
