Disentangling Timing of Admixture, Patterns of Introgression, and Phenotypic Indicators in a Hybridizing Wolf Population

Mol Biol Evol
PMCID: 5850710
PMID: 28549194
DOI: 10.1093/molbev/msx169

[…] admixture outliers and adjacent top-ranking blocks were joined into single segments. these regions were then compared with those identified in the hybrids with the bayesian genomic cline analysis in bgc (), which retrieves snps with excess of ancestry in one of the parental populations (the reference wolves and the reference dogs identified from admixture) compared with random expectations (α […]


Insight into the roles of selection in speciation from genomic patterns of divergence and introgression in secondary contact in venomous rattlesnakes

Ecol Evol
PMCID: 5468163
PMID: 28616190
DOI: 10.1002/ece3.2996

[…] poorly explained by a neutral model of evolution based on their comparison to simulated f st and dxy distributions in gppfst., we conducted bayesian estimation of genomic clines using the program bgc (gompert & buerkle, ) to identify loci that defy neutral expectations of admixture compared to the genomic background. we segregated samples into western, eastern, and admixed populations […]


Evidence for Mito Nuclear and Sex Linked Reproductive Barriers between the Hybrid Italian Sparrow and Its Parent Species

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 3886922
PMID: 24415954
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1004075

[…] selection on introgression, these analyses can be employed on any geographic pattern of contact and so are amenable for use in studies of hybrid speciation., bayesian genomic cline analysis (bgc) , fits the barton cline and estimates the parameters α (excess of house or spanish alleles) and β (rate or steepness of cline), analogous to geographic cline center and width respectively , . […]


Alternative forms for genomic clines

Ecol Evol
PMCID: 3728937
PMID: 23919142
DOI: 10.1002/ece3.609

[…] cline, and beta cline models flagged only the previously identified “superinvasive” markers (cm6e11, cm12c11, cm23c6 fig. ). analyses with the barton cline (using the bayesian method of bgc or my likelihood implementation in hiest) failed to detect cm12c11 as an outlier. outlier detection using multinomial regression identified the three superinvasive markers and the two “ringers” […]
