  1. aFWS values (within-infection genotypic fixation indices) are given for individual infection samples in Table S1 and Fig. 2.
  2. bSequence accession numbers for all 284 new P. falciparum clinical samples obtained from four populations in this study are given in Table S1. Sequence data from other populations are previously published, and SNP genotype data are publicly available For published population data, sample sizes analysed here differ slightly from those previously analysed, due to improvements in the SNP calling algorithm, and also to criteria for exclusion based on missing data as described in the Materials and Methods.
