Detecting strong positive selection in the genome

Molecular Ecology Resources

May 14, 2011

W Stephan

Abstract

New statistical tests have been developed in the past decade that enable us to infer evidence of recent strong positive selection from genome-wide data on single-nucleotide polymorphism and to localize the targets of selection in the genome. Based on these tests, past demographic events...read more
