  1. 1Alleles were arbitrarily assigned numbers based on SNPs in the section of the gene that was sequenced.
  2. 2Number of homozygotes that would be expected under Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.
  3. 3Probability that the observed deviation from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium is due to chance based on a chi-squared test with one degree of freedom.
  4. 4Significance of the test for Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium: n.s., not significant; *, probability of observed deviation being due to chance < 0.05 or **,< 0.01.
