  • Mo, Montblanc; La, Lamto; Ma, Malawi. Fst, which measures the proportion of nucleotide diversity attributable to variation between populations, was estimated from the average number of differences between alleles according to Hudson et al. (1992a). Prob, probability assessed by the Hudson et al., (1992b) permutation procedure, using K*s as the test statistic.
