[…] allele frequencies among populations. we used the locprior option, with the most likely k determined using evanno’s δk [,]. graphical representation of structure results were performed using clumpak (, migration rates among populations were estimated using microsatellite data with migrate-n 3.6.5 []. we conducted searches using one long and four short […]

[…] defined prior probabilities that each individual was an immigrant (v = 0.01–0.10) and incorporated information on the geographic origin of each sample before running the clustering analysis. we used clumpak [] to integrate results from multiple runs for different values of k and to implement methods for choosing k., to further explore the origins of individual whales, we assigned individuals […]

[…] option. the initial burn-in length was set to 100000 followed by 100000 markov chain monte carlo (mcmc) iterations. to identify the appropriate number of k, structure harvester and online software clumpak were used [,]. a threshold membership coefficient of 70% was utilized to assign each individual to a specific group (k), and those that did not meet this criterion were considered as admixed. […]

[…] 1 to 11. the estimate of the best k was calculated as described by evanno et al. () using structure harvester (ver. 0.6.92) software (earl and vonholdt, ). the clustering markov packager across k (clumpak, program was used to simplify the comparison of clustering results from the structure programs across all 20 repetitions of k and to determine […]
