In the version of this article initially published, due to a formatting error in the data input files, the maximum likelihood estimation of parasite age presented was incorrect. In the third-to-last sentence of the “P. falciparum replication is not impaired in the dry season” paragraph, “~17 hpi, 95 %CI (14.05, 20.8)” and “~7 hpi, 95% CI (6.5, 7.7)” have been amended as follows: “We determined that parasites circulating in the dry season had a transcriptional signature of ~12.5 hpi, 95% CI (11.2, 13.8), whereas parasites circulating in malaria cases during the wet season had a transcription profile similar to parasites with ~6.4 hpi, 95% CI (6.16, 6.8) (Fig. 5e).” The panel in Fig. 5e has been replaced, as shown below. Further, the original and corrected input files, and R scripts for processing, are available in this notice as Supplementary information to increase transparency. The overall conclusions are not affected by this update. Supplementary information are available online.
