  1. * Groups are defined as follows: Overall = all population samples from China, North China = (East China + Mengxin), East China = (AHYS, HBHH, HBAX, HNLB, HNMS, HNLK, JSPX, LNHLD, LNJZ SDDY, SXYJ, sSXDL, TJ,), Mengxin = (Ai, BaM, Bo, HaM, JLNA), South China = (hNLD, hNSYms, hNSY1, HnSY2), and Tibetan = (L, R, SCJSJ). Traditionally, (East China + South China) has been considered to belong to the oriental subspecies. Please refer to Figure 1 for their location.
