  • The HKA test, which tests imbalance between the intra and interspecific nucleotide variation, showed that the intraspecific nucleotide variation in the Pgi region was much lower than the interspecific variation, while intraspecific variation in the Tpi region was only slightly lower than interspecific variation [6].
