Single nucleotide polymorphisms derived from ancestral populations show no evidence for biased diversity estimates in Drosophila melanogaster.

Abstract

Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are about to become one of the most popular genetic markers for genetic model organisms. To test the usefulness of SNPs for estimating genetic diversity, we surveyed three genomic regions in two Drosophila melanogaster populations, one from Africa and one European, collected in Austria. Diversity estimates based on the… (More)
