a: Intron (Int), Exon or Untranslated region (UTR) position in the gene

b: Minor allele frequency (MAF)

c: alleles slightly out of Hardy Weinberg Equilibrium

d: Significant using Bonferroni correction. Other p-values were corrected by empirical permutation

e: Significant association in Duffy et al. 2006

NA: No answer. Only observed among individuals with brown eye colour
