A subpopulation D of rare alleles is considered. The subpopulation is part of a large population that evolves according to a Moran model with selection and growth. Conditional on the current frequency, q, of the rare allele, an approximation to the distribution of the genealogy of D is derived. In particular, the density of the age, T(1), of the rare allele is approximated. It is shown that time naturally is measured in units of qN(0) generations, where N(0) is the present day population size… CONTINUE READING
