Since the arrival of genetic typing methods in the late 1960's, researchers have puzzled at the clinical consequence of observed strain mixtures within clinical isolates of Plasmodium falciparum. We present a new statistical model that infers the number of strains present and the amount of admixture with the local population (panmixia) using whole-genome sequence data. The model provides a rigorous statistical approach to inferring these quantities as well as the proportions of the strainsarXiv:1505.08171v1 fatcat:kul6zlxuvbc3thfp3hfy54x7lu
