Ancient Wolf Genome Reveals an Early Divergence of Domestic Dog Ancestors and Admixture into High-Latitude Breeds
TLDR
The directly dated ancient wolf genome is used to recalibrate the molecular timescale of wolves and dogs and finds that the mutation rate is substantially slower than assumed by most previous studies, suggesting that the ancestors of dogs were separated from present-day wolves before the Last Glacial Maximum.
Detecting Regular Sound Changes in Linguistics as Events of Concerted Evolution
TLDR
A general statistical model is developed that can detect concerted changes in aligned sequence data and apply it to study regular sound changes in the Turkic language family, demonstrating that a model with no prior knowledge of complex concerted or regular changes can nevertheless infer the historical timings and genealogical placements of events of concerted change from the signals left in contemporary data.
