TABLE 2

Variance of the ln RV test statistic based on computer simulations of 1000 loci in two neutrally evolving populations under the two-phase microsatellite mutation model

K = 0K = 0.2K = 0.4
S = 51.44*1.98*1.90*
S = 102.66*1.99*
  • K is the probability of a mutation encompassing more than one repeat unit, and S is the upper boundary of size change by a single mutation event. Θ = 5 (in both populations). *No deviation from normal distribution by Kolmogorov-Smirnov and tail tests (P > 0.3).
