Maximum likelihood estimation of allele frequencies in the eusocial Hymenoptera using offspring genotypes

Biometrics. September; 523: 1026-1032
Maximum likelihood estimation of allele frequencies in the eusocial Hymenoptera using offspring genotypes
A method is described for estimating allele frequencies in a reproductive population, assuming that each colony (of ants, social bees or social wasps) has one singly-mated queen producing all the offspring, and a simulated example is given.
