IN a recent issue of Genetics, RoyChoudhury and Stephens (2007) showcased a new method for estimating the population scaled mutation rate u from microsatellite data; u is equivalent to four times the effective population size times the mutation rate per generation and can also be viewed as the scaled population size. Their approximation delivered impressively accurate results with little bias. They compared their results with several other commonly available programs. Their study is a good… CONTINUE READING
