  1. N is the sample size (number of adult S. haematobium genotyped, DNA from 6 males and 6 females was sampled), HE is the expected heterozygosity (calculated as Nei’s unbiased gene diversity (Nei, 1987)) ± the inter-locus standard deviation, HO is the observed heterozygosity ± the interlocus standard deviation, A is the mean number of alleles, P is the number of private alleles, and FIS is the Weir and Cockerham (1984) estimate for inbreeding.
