Figure 4. . Genetic variation in haplotype diversity at 25 polymorphic loci in chromosome 6 of Cryptosporidium hominis (see Table 2 for identification of loci). Red squares indicate subtype IbA10G2 and black circles indicate non-IbA10G2 subtypes. A homogeneity (reduced haplotype diversity) of subtype IbA10G2 was seen in 4 loci around the 60-kDa glycoprotein gene.
