Isolate mixture and random mating

Ranajit Chakraborty

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Under some conditions, a heterogeneous mixture of random mating isolates cannot be distinguished from a homogeneous random mating population. This emphasizes that knowledge of the homogeneity of the population is imperative before the assumption of panmixia can be invoked. Such cautions are more important because with usual sample size the natural level of deviations from panmixia is difficult to detect.
