Selective Sweeps across Twenty Millions Years of Primate Evolution

Molecular Biology and Evolution

Sep 24, 2016

Kasper MunchThomas Mailund

Abstract

The contribution from selective sweeps to variation in genetic diversity has proven notoriously difficult to assess, in part because polymorphism data only allows detection of sweeps in the most recent few hundred thousand years. Here, we show how linked selection in ancestral species c...read more

Parasite genetics is the study of the genetic material of parasites. Here is the latest research on parasite genetics.

Genetic Speciation

Speciation depends on the genetic evolution of reproductive barriers that allow populations to diverge from each other. Discover the latest research on Genetic Speciation here.

Parasite evolution

Parasite evolution involves the heritable genetic changes that a parasite accumulates during its life time. Discover the latest research on parasite evolution here.
