The Effects of Demographic History and Selection on Patterns of Polymorphism


The effect of demographic history on patterns of polymorphism at a locus can seriously impede the detection of selection. Sliding window analysis of Tajima’s D was performed on sequence data available for Picea abies. The distribution of Tajima’s D was compared to coalescent simulations of different demographic scenarios. A growth model including some… (More)
