The numbers of gene (codon) differences per locus between two randomly chosen genomes within and between Caucasian, Negro, and Japanese populations have been estimated from gene frequency data for protein loci. The estimated number of gene differences between individuals from different populations is only slightly greater than the number between individuals from the same population.
