  1. The number of isolates that were successfully genotyped at each codon from each of the study site. As an example: Kisumu N86Y codon had the highest number of successfully genotyped codons (total 91, wild type 88 and mutant 3) whereas Kericho Y184F had the lowest number of successfully genotyped codons (total 18, wild type 7 and mutant 11)
