We studied spatial patterns for 24 allele frequencies representing 15 systems (blood antigens, enzymes, serum proteins, color blindness, and cerumen) in Japan. The total number of samples over all systems and localities is 1125. We investigated patterns of genetic variation graphically as interpolated allele frequency surfaces, as one-dimensional and directional correlograms, and by testing for the direction of maximal genetic autocorrelation. We examined the allele frequency surfaces by… CONTINUE READING
