Mosquito Survival Data

This data file includes in the "Survival Data" tab the daily mortality events for the associated infection experiments. We have recorded number of mosquitoes alive vs. dead each day post-infection with human malaria. We also followed a blood-fed, uninfected control group to determine if the effects of temperature and diurnal temperature range had a different impact on the daily probability of mosquito survival for P. falciparum infected mosquitoes. Finally, we also recorded the number of mosquitoes that were dissected for midguts and salivary glands to assess parasite infection so that these cases could be censored in the downstream survival analysis. The "Data Codes" tab has descriptors for the various column headings and data labels.
