This chapter presents another comparative genetic dataset, this time a particularly informative autosomal variant (an insertion/deletion on chromosome 22) that is presumed to be selectively neutral. It has a highly variable distribution across this set of populations in Northern Island Melanesia, and is known to be polymorphic worldwide. It is monomorphic in the more inaccessible regions of Bougainville, New Britain, and New Guinea.

Keywords:   indel, monomorphic, Northern Island Melanesia
