Hello, I am trying to use BEAST to infer the ancestry of intra-specific isolates (we have ~200). I currently have a list of SNPs called from illumina sequencing data. Since Im basing my BEAST analysis on these SNPs, is there a way to normalize the number of mutational events observed in each isolate to the size of the genome over which a high quality call is possible? Would this be even necessary? I assume one way of doing this would be to do some bootstrapping, but this would be too PC time consuming

Is it possible to normalize the number of observed SNPs to the size of the genome a good quality call can be made
