Generating a mathematical model for sporozoite data. For each COM, average and standard deviation of sporozoite values were calculated. The data from mosquitoes fed with NHS (13 COMs with 188 mosquitoes) were utilized to build a zero-inflated negative binomial (ZINB) model. The dotted line is the best-fit line calculated from the ZINB model, not the best-fit of all NHS and TB antibody data points. The fitness of the model to the mosquitoes fed with TB antibodies (15COMs with 227 mosquitoes) was R2 = 0.707
