• PyRSD‐CoEv: A python package for selective sweep detection and co‐evolutionary gene cluster identification

    27 days ago - By Animal Genetics

    Summary
    Genes undergo distinct selective sweeps, and also interact and coevolve, forming the bases of complex phenotypic traits. Therefore, the identification of genes that coevolve or are under artificial selective sweeps is of great importance. However, previous computational methods have been designed for either populations of closely related breeds or individuals of distinct species. Approaches intended specifically for closely related individuals without replicate (i.e. each breed/strain is represented by only one individual) are long overdue. We present a free, powerful, open source...
