Table 3 Effect of varying r2 on number of tagSNPs selected using Tagger and MAF≥3% for six genes using NHLBI resequencing data. First number is tagSNPs using 2 and 3 multi-marker SNP tagging, second number is number of tests (the number of unique combinations of tag SNPs required to represent all SNPs).
