Fine scale mapping of genomic introgressions within the Drosophila yakuba clade

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 5600410
PMID: 28873409

[…] ite low levels of hybridization, introgression is old because recombination has broken down introgressed regions over time. To obtain a rough estimate of the age of introgression, we used the program SELAM []. Modeling all of the potential demographic and introgression histories would be beyond the scope of this paper. Instead we modeled the simplest hybridization with introgression scenario: a si […]


A Hidden Markov Model Approach for Simultaneously Estimating Local Ancestry and Admixture Time Using Next Generation Sequence Data in Samples of Arbitrary Ploidy

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 5242547
PMID: 28045893
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1006529

[…] iduals, nor identically distributed along chromosomes []. We therefore aim to determine what bias violations of this assumption will have on inferences obtained from this model. Towards this, we used SELAM [] to simulate admixed populations under the biological model described above. Because this program simulated admixture in forward time, it generates the full pedigree-based ancestral recombinat […]
