SNPs 1&2 in the EHI_080100 locus segregate with disease. Distribution of the SNP1 which was either Reference (□,MS)(Ref), Non-Reference (■ ALA);(Non-Ref) was shown on the x-axis. The number of samples of with this genotype isolated from patients with either amebic liver abscesses diarrhea/(D/D) asymptomatic disease COL was shown on the y-axis. Fisher’s pairwise comparison between asymptomatic and diarrhea/dysentery p = 0.0182 (*); between amebic liver abscess and diarrhea/dysentery samples p = 0.0003; q = 0.0144 (**); Chi-squared contingency analysis of all phenotypes p = 0.002; q = 0.032 (**).
