The stepwise mutation model (SMM) is a simple, widely used model to describe the evolutionary behaviour of microsatellites. We apply a Markov chain description of the SMM and derive the marginal and joint properties of this process. In addition to the standard SMM, we also consider the normalised allele process. In contrast to the standard process, the normalised process converges to a stationary distribution. We show that the marginal stationary distribution is unimodal. The standard and normalised processes capture the global and the local behaviour of the SMM, respectively.
