Table 3 Average Fst Values for K = 2 and K = 3

From: Recently integrated Alu insertions in the squirrel monkey (Saimiri) lineage and application for population analyses

K Value Cluster Number Average Fst
K = 2 1 .7747
K = 2 2 .6950
K = 3 1 .8014
K = 3 2 .7639
K = 3 3 .3391
  1. Average Fst values for K (estimated population clusters) equals 2 and K equals 3. If K = 2, Fst values are similar which implies genetic similarity between populations. If K = 3, Fst values are similar for two population clusters and one cluster has an extremely low value of 0.3391. That extremely low value implies Cluster 3 is sharing genetic material through inbreeding and appears to be isolated
