Tests of selective neutrality based on comparative and population genetic data target different time scales of selection. Investigating both time scales on the same genes has rarely been done and yet can provide insights into histories of selection. In pathogens, such a comparison can elucidate whether the same genes experience recurrent positive selection across specialization events onto novel hosts and selection in the short term, e.g. by coevolution with a current host. Here, we… CONTINUE READING
