  • Population abbreviations are listed in Table 1.

  • a Populations are ordered according to the sum of their ranks for the three statistics presented.

  • b FST and Snn values are arithmetic means of the four pairwise values from comparisons of the given sub-Saharan population with each of the four cosmopolitan populations. The 17 sub-Saharan populations are ranked starting from the lowest value (closest relationship).

  • c Number of polymorphisms shared between the given sub-Saharan population and one or more of the cosmopolitan populations (total for all four loci).

  • d Not ranked due to apparent cosmopolitan admixture.
