A selective sweep describes the reduction of diversity due to strong positive selection. If the mutation rate to a selectively beneficial allele is sufficiently high, Pennings and Hermisson (Mol Biol Evol 23(5):1076–1084, 2006a) have shown, that it becomes likely, that a selective sweep is caused by several individuals. Such an event is called a soft sweep and the complementary event of a single origin of the beneficial allele, the classical case, a hard sweep. We give analytical expressions… CONTINUE READING
