Hi everyone,

I'm currently confused by the option of VCFtools: --hwe. From my understanding, this option measure whether each site from every individual in the VCF file significantly departures from the HW balance. But what if individuals in the file are not from the same population or even species? They definitely cannot reach HW balance for they breed separately. In this case what's the meaning of it?

Thanks!
