The Coop lab at UC Davis (www.gcbias.org) is seeking candidates for two postdoctoral positions. These two positions will broadly focus on: 1) The evolutionary causes and consequences of recombination variation in humans. 2) understanding polygenic selection and soft sweeps. Successful … Continue reading
Identification of Founding Haplotypes Reveals the History of the Selfing Species Capsella rubella out @ PLOS Genetics
Yaniv’s paper: Genomic Identification of Founding Haplotypes Reveals the History of the Selfing Species Capsella rubella is out @ PLOS Genetics. Congrats to all of the authors.
There was a conversation on twitter about Haldane’s 2s approximation to the fixation probability of an allele, and how it related to the diffusion approximation of the same quantity. This followed from a blog post by Adam Eyre-Walker. I thought … Continue reading
This post is cross posted from Haldane’s sieve. This guest post is by Graham Coop [@graham_coop] on the journal Molecular Biology and Evolution’s new preprint policy. We had an interesting discussion via twitter on the potential reasons for MBE’s policy … Continue reading
I’m releasing my notes on popgen here. I’m release the pdf (and shortly the latex, figures, and code) under a creative common license in order to encourage reuse by as many folks as possible. I’ll be updating them somewhat regularly, … Continue reading
Coop lab tea: Indirect Evolution of Hybrid Lethality Due to Linkage with Selected Locus in Mimulus guttatus
For Coop lab tea we’ll read: Indirect Evolution of Hybrid Lethality Due to Linkage with Selected Locus in Mimulus guttatus by Wright et al.
Journal tea: Oct 23rd Distinguishing between Selective Sweeps from Standing Variation and from a De Novo Mutation
Distinguishing between Selective Sweeps from Standing Variation and from a De Novo Mutation Peter et al
We read: Butterfly genome reveals promiscuous exchange of mimicry adaptations among species which was a potentially neat paper, but we were unsure whether it was really introgression of the mimcry genes or maintenance of trans-population/species polymorphism by balancing selection.
We’ve just resubmitted our article on the coalescent for generalized selective sweeps to Genetics. I’ve posted the new version to the arXiv.
