Differentiation between two populations, as quantified by Weir and Cockerham’s FST estimator theta [[19]]
Genotypes population A Genotypes population B FST
Informative polymorphism TT TC CC TT TC CC

Uninformative polymorphism TT TC CC TT TC CC

Other FST estimators produce qualitatively similar results), given informative and uninformative single nucleotide polymorphism at a marker locus (two alleles are present, T and C).
