Correlation coefficients of Plasmodium falciparum F ws within-infection fixation indices derived from randomly sampled small numbers of SNPs, compared with indices using all genome-wide SNPs analysed. The effect of using SNPs with allele frequencies above different levels is shown. Within the overall SNP set sampled, 7684 SNPs have a minor allele frequency (MAF) of >5 %; 5004 SNPs have MAF of >10 %; 2854 SNPs have MAF of >20 %; 1719 SNPs have MAF >30 %; 833 SNPs have MAF >40 %. Replications of 100 random samples of different numbers of SNPs (between 1 and 20) were performed, and the mean correlation coefficient for each is plotted
