John....

"..In short, the expected squared difference between the average
haplotypes of two populations is proportional to the time elapsed
since the split, and the proportionality is given by the symmetric
part of the directly measured mutation rates...."

Please elaborate on how to compare "least?" squares differebce and
measure mutation rates.

Can you give an example for us mathematically challenged folks.

Thanks

Bill
