Genetics 152:763-73. 1999..The estimates are as good as or better than those from an optimized FST-based measure. The program is available on the World Wide Web at http://evolution.genetics. washington.edu/lamarc.html/...
- Maximum likelihood estimation of a migration matrix and effective population sizes in n subpopulations by using a coalescent approachP Beerli
Department of Genetics, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195 7360, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 98:4563-8. 2001..The algorithm converges to the estimates fairly quickly, even when the Markov chain is started from unfavorable parameters. The method was used to estimate gene flow in the Nile valley by using mtDNA data from three human populations...

Department of Genetics, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington 98195 7360, USA
Genetics 156:439-47. 2000..Researchers collecting SNPs should collect and preserve information about the method of ascertainment so that the data can be accurately analyzed...
