Using duality, an expansion is found for the transition function of the reversible $K$-allele diffusion model in population genetics. In the neutral case, the expansion is explicit but already known. When selection is present, it depends on the distribution at time $t$ of a specified $K$-type birth-and-death process starting at "infinity". The latter process is constructed by means of a coupling argument and characterized as the Ray process corresponding to the Ray–Knight compactification of the $K$-dimensional nonnegative-integer lattice.
