Optimization of K (number of populations) value in population genetic structure using log probability data Ln (K) as function based on Island model (IM) of microsatellite markers (Evanno et al. 2005). The population structure among rice genotypes was found most suitable at K = 4 with Ln (K) value of -10206.
