Transposable Elements in Mendelian Populations. III. Statistical Results

  • Investigations


Methods are proposed for estimating the parameters in the frequency spectrum derived from the model of Langley, Brookfield and Kaplan for the evolution of a transposable element in a finite Mendelian population. Statistical properties of these estimates are studied, and the results are supported with simulation data. The effects on the estimates caused by possible insensitivities of the experimental technique are also discussed. To illustrate the proposed methodology, the data of Montgomery and Langley are analyzed.
