Genome scans of DNA variability in humans reveal evidence for selective sweeps outside of Africa

Molecular Biology and Evolution

Jay F StorzMichael W Nachman

Abstract

The last 50,000-150,000 years of human history have been characterized by rapid demographic expansions and the colonization of novel environments outside of sub-Saharan Africa. Mass migrations outside the ancestral species range likely entailed many new selection pressures, suggesting t...read more
