  • Converted migration rates for the data of Wang and Hey (2010). Values shown refer to forward-in-time parameters: Embedded Image is the fraction of subpopulation 1 (D. simulans) that migrates to subpopulation 2 (D. melanogaster) in each generation, during the period of gene flow; Embedded Image is the number of sequences migrating from subpopulation 1 to subpopulation 2 in each generation, during the period of gene flow.
