  • Six microsatellite markers were scored, four of which were exact matches, one differed by one, and one by two. The parameter values used were λ = 1/5000, μ = 0.0025. IAM, infinite alleles model; SMM0, stepwise mutational model only scoring matches vs. no match; SMME, stepwise mutation model scoring number of differences between array sizes.
