[…] mbine adjacent windows showing evidence of introgression into contiguous introgressed elements: we obtained all stretches of consecutive windows with >90% probability of introgression as predicted by FILET (i.e. the probability of no-introgression class <10%), and retained as putatively introgressed regions those that contained at least one window with >95% probability of introgression. In order t […]
