Analyzing regions of the genome where genetic variation is free from the confounding effects of natural selection is essential for many population genetic studies. Several recent studies in humans have stressed the large effect of natural selection at linked neutral sites and have shown that the choice of putatively neutral regions can have a marked effect on estimates of demographic history. NRE (Neutral Region Explorer) provides a mechanism for the easy extraction and analysis of nearly… CONTINUE READING
