The Heterogeneous HLA Genetic Makeup of the Swiss Population

Figure 2

Multidimensional scaling (MDS) analysis of 9 Swiss regions based on mean Reynold's genetic distances computed for 5 HLA loci (HLA-A, -B, -C, -DRB1 and -DQB1).

Symbols refer to the language spoken in each region. The stress value is 0.142 (indicating a rather good fit of the graphical representation to the original distance matrix). AA: Aargau-Solothurn, BE: Bern, BS: Basel, GE: Genève, GR: Graubünden, LG: Lugano (Svizzera Italiana), LS: Lausanne (Vaud), LU: Luzern (Zentralschweiz), SG: St. Gallen (Nordost-Schweiz), SI: Sion (Valais) and ZH: Zürich.
