Fraction of genetic diversity explained by geographical differentiation

Value 2 %
Organism Bacteria Escherichia coli
Reference Hartl DL, Dykhuizen DE. The population genetics of Escherichia coli. Annu Rev Genet. 1984 18 31-68. p.53PubMed ID6099090
Method Geographical genetic differentiation among strains has been studied by means of electrophoresis of 12 chromosomally determined enzymes in 178 fecal isolates from humans in Iowa, Sweden, and Tonga
Comments In comparative terms, the amount of geographical differentiation in E. coli is approximately twice that observed among the three major races of humans
