Teri Lear asks about using microsatellites for evolutionary analysis.
There are two articles in the Janueary issue of Genetics related to this.
M. Slatkin. Genetics 139:457-462
D.B. Goldstein et al. Genetics 139: 463-471.
These papers discuss statistical methods to get evolutionary distances from
differences in the number of repeats at particular microsatellite loci.
