Table 3 Pairwise Rho statistic [34] of MHC Class IIB Exon 2 for alleles called from full nucleotide sequences (below diagonal) and alleles called from nucleotide sequences of sites under positive section (above diagonal) (a); pairwise F ST statistic [37] of MHC Class IIB Exon 2 for alleles called from full nucleotide sequences (below diagonal) and alleles called from nucleotide sequences of sites under positive section (above diagonal) (b); pairwise S nn statistic [39] of MHC Class IIB Exon 2 for full length nucleotide sequences (below diagonal) and for nucleotide sequences of sites under positive section (above diagonal) (b) and, pairwise F ST values for 13 microsatellite loci (above diagonal) for four breeding colonies of Greater Flamingos across the Mediterranean basin

From: Very high MHC Class IIB diversity without spatial differentiation in the mediterranean population of greater Flamingos

  1. Note that all the Rho and F ST statistic values are close to zero (negative values are equivalent to 0). None of the differentiation values were significantly different from 0 regardless of the statistic (Rho or F ST ) or the marker investigated (MHC Class IIB exon 2 or microsatellite markers). Similarly none of the S nn statistic values were significantly different from 0.5, the predicted value of panmixia between two populations
