θ1 = effective size of population 2, θ2 = effective size of population 2, θa = effective size of ancestral population, m1 = migration into population 1 from population 2, m2 = migration in to population 2 from population 1, τ = splitting time between populations. Splitting time is calibrated against two mutations rates: μ1 = 5 × 10-8 [21], μ2 = 1.5 × 10-8 [76] adjusted for the number of base pairs in the sequence. Posterior probability densities are provided in Additional File 2, Figure S1.
