  • Simulation with unequal known parameters of 100 two-locus datasets with 25 sampled individuals in each population and 500 bp per locus. SN, the population sizes are the same in both subpopulations and migration rates are variable; SM, the migration rates are symmetrical and the population sizes are variable. Simulation runs with negative migration rates were discarded from the analysis in lines with • signs; in lines with 엯, negative values were replaced by 0.0.
