    J Wakeley
    Department of Population Genetics, National Institute of Genetics, Mishima, Japan
    Theor Popul Biol 49:369-86. 1996
    ..The power and realized significance of the test are investigated using simulations, and an example using mitochondrial DNA illustrates its application...

    J Wakeley
    Department of Biological Sciences, Rutgers University, Piscataway, New Jersey 08855 1059, USA
    Genetics 145:847-55. 1997
