Mismatch distribution analysis (MMA) and Bayesian Skyline Plot (BSP) obtained from mtDNA nps 8000–9000, 10,000–11,000 and HVS-I. MMA: the hypothesis of sudden expansion is not rejected by the SSD test (P = 0.06) [42]. BSP [45]: From an expanded population of ~ 3600 women, the Thao effective population today is approximately 400 and agrees with a recent survey of 660 Thao males and females [1]
