Human demographic history has amplified the effects of background selection across the genome

bioRxiv

Aug 29, 2017

Raul TorresRyan D. Hernandez

Abstract

Natural populations often grow, shrink, and migrate over time. Demographic processes such as these can impact genome-wide levels of genetic diversity. In addition, genetic variation in functional regions of the genome can be altered by natural selection, which drives adaptive mutations ...read more
