Positive and negative selection on noncoding DNA close to protein-coding genes in wild house mice.


During the past two decades, evidence has accumulated of adaptive evolution within protein-coding genes in a variety of species. However, with the exception of Drosophila and humans, little is known about the extent of adaptive evolution in noncoding DNA. Here, we study regions upstream and downstream of protein-coding genes in the house mouse Mus musculus… (More)
