I was wondering if anyone ever tried calculating Fu's FS statistic in both Arlequin and DnaSP? I did, but I get different values. I used both programs to calculate Tajima's D and Fu's FS, with the same dataset, and I get exactly the same values for Tajima's D but different values for Fu's FS. Does anyone know if the different programs calculate Fu's FS differently? I looked it up on the available documentation but couldn't find much information.


many thanks

Hei Helena, did you finally solve the problem? Me, I am faced with the same issue: different results for Fu's Fs in Arlequin (extremely negative ones, which are higly significant in all populations...but the result seems inplausible) and DNAsp (moderately negative and rarely significant). Would be so interesting for me, what the reason for this discrepancy is.. Best, Ursula
