Previous studies based on allozyme variation have found little evidence for genetic differentiation in Drosophila simulans. On the basis of DNA sequence variation at two nuclear loci in four African populations of D. simulans, we show that there is significant structure to D. simulans populations within Africa. Variation at one of the loci, vermilion, appears to be neutral and supports an eastern African origin for European and American populations. Samples from the West Indies, Europe, and… CONTINUE READING
