Experimental Protocol

In all, 17 lines were used in this study: 15 natural isolates derived from throughout sub-Saharan Africa; and 2 laboratory strains representing the reference genome for the tiling arrays and a line containing probes known to be duplicated and deleted. Each line was represented by 3 array hybridizations, for a total of 51 hybridizations. Normalization and subsequent analysis was conducted independently on 15 sets of 9 arrays. Each set was composed of the 6 lab strains and the three replicates from one natural isolate.
