Figure 3

Pattern of HBB LD in Yoruba. The figure shows pairwise D' between the βSA allele (shaded allele) and 180 high frequency SNPs (minor allele frequency > 0.05). D' > 0.9 is shown in red, D' > 0.7 in green, D' > 0.5 in gray, and values < 0.5 in white. The figure also indicates the 70 kb region around β-globin, and the recombination hotspot (dark gray box).
