Analysis of molecular variance among and within sampled populations of Penicillium marneffei*

Source df Estimated variance (%) p value
Regions (China and Thailand) 1 0.974 (39) >0.001
Among species (humans and rats) 2 0.059 (2) >0.002
Within species
1.446 (58)
Total 268 2.478 (100)

*%, percentage of the total variance component across the specified hierarchy; p, probability that the observed variance is greater than that expected for the null hypothesis Ho, generated by 999 random permutations of the data.
