ploidy

The number of copies of the set of chromosomes in a cell. A normal diploid cell with two copies has a ploidy of two; a haploid cell with one copy, such as an ovum or a spermatozoon, has a ploidy of one.

ploidy

the number of chromosome sets making up the total genome of an organism.

Thus the ploidy of normal humans is two and is written 2n. See DIPLOID (1).

The different SNPs were combined to generate the following mutant Pfdhfr/Pfdhps haplotypes: quadruple haplo type (double Pfdhfr [CICNI/CNRNI] with double Pfdhps [AGEAA/SGEAA]); quintuple haplotypes (triple Pfdhfr with double Pfdhps [CNRNI-AGEAA/SGEAA] or double Pfdhfr with triple Pfdhps [CICNI-SGEGA]); and sextuple haplotype (triple Pfdhfr [CIRNI] and triple Pfdhps [SGEGA]).
