Soft selective sweeps: New patterns for the molecular footprint of positive selection

Friday Seminar

By Joachim Hermisson.

Abstract

 

Classical theory of molecular adaptation focuses on a restricted scenario for the adaptive process where adaptation occurs from single copies of new mutations. We show that alternative scenarios are biologically relevant and lead to drastic differences in the footprint of adaptation that may be observed from DNA polymorphism data.Other information

The CEES seminar room has a coffee-machine – it is therefore recommended that you come a bit earlier and get yourself a good cup of coffee (for the price of 3 NOK).
