  1. The data are based on the analysis 128 L. infantum strains by 14 microsatellite markers. The number of strains assigned per population is shown in parenthesis. Origin acronyms indicate the strain geographical source. P, proportion of polymorphic loci; A, number of alleles; H e , Nei’s unbiased expected heterozygosity; H o , observed heterozygosity; F IS , inbreeding coefficient.
