It follows that, given sufficient discriminatory power and an appropriate spatial scale, geographic structuring must occur in all populations. There should therefore be no surprises when future population studies based on full genome sequences reveal striking geographic structure within species previously considered to be globally homogenized. , 2009). 3 Neutrality versus Selection 25 is clear that as the discriminatory power of routine typing methods increase, so will the importance of spatial statistics.

Also, positions far apart might share some history; in Fig. 9, the leftmost and the rightmost positions share MRCA, but they do not share their entire genealogical history. 10 The consequences of the recombination process for a bacterial genome. Since the genome is circular, all recombination events resemble gene conversion events. Starting from the origin of replication (origo) moving in the direction of the arrow, a sample of five genes is related through coalescent tree 1. A recombination/gene conversion break point at the top results in a subtree transfer (indicated by an arrow) of the tree carrying sequences 3 and 4 to a different branch leading to coalescent tree 2.

As the strength of purifying selection is far greater in large populations than in small ones, these two parameters should be inversely proportional (Ohta, 1973). In many respects, the processes described above fit those classically reserved for “species,” and it may be illuminating to compare intra- versus inter “population” patterns of diversity on the basis of clonal complex. The effect of purifying selection on deleterious changes is distinct from positive selection on adaptive change in that it is not incompatible with the neutral theory.
