  • a The gene conversion rate parameter, defined as the ratio of gene conversion to crossing over.

  • b The mean and standard deviation (SD) population recombination parameter, ρ, given various assumed levels of f. ρ was estimated (using the program MAXDIP) for 10 random samples of 49 individuals from the large cohort of 2000 Drosophila melanogaster, using 167 frequent sites (>5% minor allele frequency) across Enhancer of split.
