Africa and Middle East LP genotype-phenotype correlation, obtained by calculating the quantitative difference between observed phenotype frequency and predicted phenotype frequency based on locations where only fully sequenced data of all 4-LP associated alleles was available. Positive and negative values represent cases of LP-correlated genotype under- and over-predicting the LP phenotype, respectively. Dots represent LP phenotype collection locations, crosses represent data collection locations for all currently known 4 LP-correlated alleles. Colour key shows the values of the predicted LP phenotype frequencies (Figure 4) subtracted from the observed LP phenotype frequencies (Figure 1). The Asia-Pacific data was not analysed since 4 alleles data in these regions is very sparse, and fully sequenced data for western and northern Europe is also sparse.
