Reduced median network relating J1b HVSI sequences. The central motif (star) differs from rCRS at positions: 16069 16126 16145 16222 16261 for HVI control region. Numbers along links refer to nucleotide positions minus 16000: homoplasic mutations are underlined. The broken lines are less probable links due to mutation recurrence. Size of boxes is proportional to the number of individuals included. Codes are: Am = Armenian, Ar = Saudi Arab, Bd = Bedouin Arab, Eg = Egyptian, Ge = Georgian, In = Iranian, Iq = Iraqi, Jo = Jordanian, Ka = Kazakhs, Ki = Kirghiz, Ku = Kurd, Mo = Moroccan Berber, NC = Caucasian, Om = Omani, Pa = Palestinian, Qa = Qatar, Sy = Syrian, Ta = Tajik, Tm = Turkmen, Tn = Tunisian, Tu = Turk, UA = United Arab Emirates, UZ = Uzbek, Ye = Yemeni.
