The extent to which natural selection shapes diversity within populations is a key question for population genetics. Thus, there is considerable interest in quantifying the strength of selection. A full likelihood approach for inference about selection at a single site within an otherwise neutral fully linked sequence of sites is described here. A(More)
We describe a new approximate likelihood for population genetic data under a model in which a single ancestral population has split into two daughter populations. The approximate likelihood is based on the 'Product of Approximate Conditionals' likelihood and 'copying model' of Li and Stephens [Li, N., Stephens, M., 2003. Modeling linkage disequilibrium and(More)
When performing association studies in populations that have not been the focus of large-scale investigations of haplotype variation, it is often helpful to rely on genomic databases in other populations for study design and analysis - such as in the selection of tag SNPs and in the imputation of missing genotypes. One way of improving the use of these(More)
