Although microsatellites are a very efficient tool for many population genetics applications, they may occasionally produce "null" alleles, which, when present in high proportion, may affect estimates of key parameters such as inbreeding and relatedness coefficients or measures of genetic differentiation. In order to account for the presence of null alleles, it is first necessary to estimate their frequency within studied populations. However, the commonly used null allele frequency estimators… CONTINUE READING
