  1. DnaSP (version 6.10.01) was used to calculate the number of segregating sites (S), nucleotide diversity (π) among all loci, nucleotide diversity (π) among non-synonymous sites, the number of unique DNA haplotypes, haplotype diversity (Hd), and the average number of nucleotide differences between P. falciparum haplotype for each of the populations
