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.
