Abstract

Previous work by Small, et al ., examined an inversion polymorphism on the long arm of the Xchromosome involving two genes ( FLNA and EMD ) and determined the frequency of the inversion in a group of European individuals. 1 Here we investigate multiple ancestral groups from across the globe in an attempt to examine the variation within and between populations and find that frequency of inversion differs greatly between ancestral groups.
