Example of Gene Flow

Gene flow is literally the movement of gene characteristics through populations. This is one of the major demographic studies of genetics, and also one of the common measures of genetic traits like disease risks and other natural characteristics. Statistical analysis can pin down genetic issues in a population, like risks of birth defects, and other major issues. (Studies in some remote areas have shown almost stagnant gene pools, with serious birth defect problems.) This is an emerging area of study, developing from Mendelian genetics through to the modern science, which can now accurately track genetic histories of populations.
