The vivaxGEN-geo tool uses Plasmodium vivax genotyping data generated at a selection of SNP barcodes to predict the country of origin of a given sample. Country predictions are derived using a likelihood classifier. The likelihood classifier was trained using data from the following countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brazil, Cambodia, China, Colombia, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Iran, Madagascar, Malaysia, Mexico, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Sudan, Thailand and Vietnam.
