genDist: Genetic distances between 23 populations of Y-chromosome haplogroup R1b1b2 in Europe, calculated from haplotype microsatellite data (see source).
dist object (genDist) and dataframe (popCoord)
Distances calculated from Table S1 in Balaresque et al. (2010). Coordinates from Table 1.
The distance measure used is the negative logarithm of the shared proportion of alleles.
popCoord: Geographic coordinates of the same populations.
