  • Arr1, gene arrangement 1; Arr2, gene arrangement 2; ϕ, probability that a converting tract elongates to an additional nucleotide; E(N), expected true gene conversion tract length with 95% confidence interval, E(T), the sum of branch lengths in the genealogy; Φ, the flux of gene conversion events per generation between arrangement within locus; H, maximum heterozygosity of gene arrangements 1 and 2 across all populations (Anderson et al. 1991); cbp, conversion rate per base pair per generation.
