Soft sweeps: molecular population genetics of adaptation from standing genetic variation

Genetics

Feb 18, 2005

Joachim Hermisson, Pleuni Simone Pennings

Abstract

A population can adapt to a rapid environmental change or habitat expansion in two ways. It may adapt either through new beneficial mutations that subsequently sweep through the population or by using alleles from the standing genetic variation. We use diffusion theory to calculate the ...read more
