  1. For each value of the gene conversion rate γ (per kb), 100 data sets with a sample size n = 20 are independently generated using the MS program [17] with a mutation rate γ = 1.0/kb and a mean tract length γ = 0.5 kb.
  2. aThe mean and SD (in parenthesis) of the parameter estimates.
  3. b#: the number of data sets with in the range (0,k γ ).
