A Generic Estimation of Population Subdivision Using Distances between Alleles with Special Reference for Microsatellite Loci

Abstract

Several estimators of population differentiation have been proposed in the recent past to deal with various types of genetic markers (i.e., allozymes, nucleotide sequences, restriction fragment length polymorphisms, or microsatellites). We discuss the relationships among these estimators and show how a single analysis of variance framework can accomodate these qualitatively different data types.
