I was wondering what the largest distance was that had been measured
between haplotypes within a species. We have looked at lots of
mosquito haplotypes using restriction digestion and find variability
is generally around 1% (in nucleotide substitutions) and almost never
more than 5%.
Would two haplotypes that differed by 10% be unlikely to come from the
I am most interested in hearing about other insects, but any animal
information would be useful.
