A very valuable addition to population genomics tools

Posted by clementkent on 19 Dec 2012 at 23:41 GMT

This article and method deserves careful study by everyone working in population genomics. It represents a real advance.

One quibble: I am not clear what happens with genes where there are 0 cells in the M-K table. Are these genes not used or is there a substitute value such as .5 used?zeros?
