  • Abstract The concept of the partitioning of genetic diversity into a component within and a component among populations (FST- or GST-statistics) can be easily expanded to compute the contribution of single subpopulations to total gene diversity. A subpopulation contributes to total gene diversity with its single-population gene diversity plus the (weighted) mean of Nei’s minimum genetic distances to all subpopulations. The suggested method allows one to unambiguously rank subpopulations… CONTINUE READING
