Identification of the most likely value for K. (A) Identification of the smallest value of K that captures the major structure in the microsatellite data. The graph shows the increase of lnPr(X|K) against K for K = 2 to 15. (B) Estimation of the most likely value of K from the position of the plateau in a plot of the rate of change of lnPr(X|K), estimated from (a), against K.
