Allelism among fragments is difficult to ascertain and in fact not often expected, since most fragments have been run off the bottom of the gel to separate and resolve the larger fragments remaining.
Allelism test of the immune/resistant lines such as syn 11, syn 38, syn 44, syn 84, syn 87, XX111, and XX195 with XX41, XX45, and XXll0 to test the identity of the gene in one of these lines with the genes tsn-3, tsn-syn1, and Tsn-syn2 should be undertaken to confirm that they are different.

Estimators have been formulated based on measures of allele number (Chakraborty and Neel, 1989), linkage disequilibrium (Laurie-Ahlberg and Weir, 1979; Hill, 1981), allelism of lethal mutations (Dobzhansky and Wright, 1941), fixation rates of chromosomal rearrangements (Lande, 1979), geographic variation in gene frequencies (Dobzhansky and Wright, 1943), and temporal variation in allele frequencies (Krimbas and Tsakas, 1971).
