Figure S1. “The distribution of high-, intermediate- and low- CYP3A5 expression phenotypes, inferred from diplotypes.” The Figure shows inferred CYP3A5 expression phenotypes, assuming that CYP3A5*6 causes low/non-expression of CYP3A5. The size of each circle is proportional to the number of individuals sampled from a given population (see Additional file Table S1).

Figures S3a and b. “Haplotypes inferred from genotype data in 8 populations.” Supplementary Figure 3a shows the composition of each CYP3A5 haplotype inferred from genotype data for 8 global populations. The frequencies of each haplotype, by population, are shown in Additional file Figure S3b.

Table S2. “Geographic co-ordinates, sample size and major language family of each population genotyped in the geographic survey of clinically relevant CYP3A5 alleles. The CYP3A5 gene was re-sequenced in five Ethiopian populations.” This Table provides details of all populations which were genotyped, and re-sequenced for this study.
