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 par […]


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

[…] mon, & Castoe, ), to identify patterns of allelic differentiation that are poorly explained by neutral processes and more likely driven by selection. We used analyses of genomic clines implemented in bgc (Gompert & Buerkle, ) to study patterns of introgression in hybrids and identify genomic regions that resist introgression due to selection. This genomic cline approach has been used in several re […]


Increased immunization coverage addresses the equity gap in Nepal

Bull World Health Organ
PMCID: 5407251
PMID: 28479621
DOI: 10.2471/BLT.16.178327

[…] as vacunas a la edad de 12 meses aumentó de un 68,8% (intervalo de confianza, IC, del 95%: 67,5–70,1) a un 82,4% (IC del 95%: 80,7–84,0). Estadísticamente, si bien la cobertura de inmunización contra BGC, DPT y sarampión aumentó durante el periodo de estudio, el porcentaje de niños que recibieron la tercera dosis de la vacuna antipoliomielítica descendió de un 93,3% (IC del 95%: 92,7–93,9) a un 88 […]


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
call_split See protocol

[…] ates a potential association with reproductive isolation. Examination of individual SNP cline width with respect to hybrid index was carried out using Bayesian genomic clines method as implemented in BGC . Spanish sparrows from Badajoz and Gargano, and house sparrows from Oslo and Hradec Králové, were used to indicate parental genotype frequencies (). For the genomic clines analyses, all individua […]


Alternative forms for genomic clines

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

[…] using their randomization test (assuming negligible genetic drift since secondary contact) to identify markers potentially linked to loci affecting hybrid fitness. I also used the stand-alone program bgc (Gompert and Buerkle ) to fit the spliced Barton function and identify outliers using Gompert and Buerkle's () univariate Bayesian method. Then I fit each of the cline and regression models descri […]
