Vincent,



According to the source I quoted earlier, "Genetics" by Hartwell et al 2008, the class of polymorphism that is called a "SNP" has a locus size of a single bp. The rate of mutation is given as 1*10 to the negative 9th. So expressing mutation rates as mutations per base pair vs. mutations per SNP would not appear to be different at all. I am missing something?
