PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email info@biomedcentral.com, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

We would like to add the following supplementary information for this study.

1) The DNA sequences of the primers used in this study have been referenced in the original text. For clarification, the primer sequences are as follows: 

Plasmodium consensus

forward 5’-GCTCTTTCTTGATTTCTTGGATG-3’

reverse 5’-AGCAGGTTAAGATCTCGTTCG-3’

P. falciparum speciation

forward 5’-CCGACTAGGTGTTGGATGAAAGTGTTAA-3’

reverse 5’-AGCAATCTAAAAGTCACCTCGAA-3’ 

P. vivax speciation

forward 5’-CGCTTCTAGCTTAATCCACATAACTGATAC-3’

reverse 5’-ACTTCCAAGCCGAAGCAAAGAAAGTCCTTA-3’

 2) In addition we gratefully acknowledge The Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND) in sponsoring sample collection at the Hospital for Tropical Diseases and contributions from Dr. Spencer D. Polley. We offer our most sincere apologies for not including this acknowledgement in the original submission.
