Genome-wide scans for footprints of natural selection

Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Series B, Biological Sciences

Abstract

Detecting recent selected 'genomic footprints' applies directly to the discovery of disease genes and in the imputation of the formative events that molded modern population genetic structure. The imprints of historic selection/adaptation episodes left in human and animal genomes allow ...read more
