Inference in two dimensions: allele frequencies versus lengths of shared sequence blocks.

  title={Inference in two dimensions: allele frequencies versus lengths of shared sequence blocks.},

  journal={Theoretical population biology},
We outline two approaches to inference of neighbourhood size, N, and dispersal rate, σ(2), based on either allele frequencies or on the lengths of sequence blocks that are shared between genomes. Over intermediate timescales (10-100 generations, say), populations that live in two dimensions approach a quasi-equilibrium that is independent of both their local structure and their deeper history. Over such scales, the standardised covariance of allele frequencies (i.e. pairwise FST) falls with the… CONTINUE READING
