A New Approach for Using Genome Scans to Detect Recent Positive Selection in the Human Genome

Signal of Positive Selection around the SCL24A5 Gene in Europeans from the HapMap Data

(A) The EHH decay plot for i, a neutral site outside the selective sweep; and ii, a site in the middle of the SCL24A5 gene, which shows strong evidence of positive selection in Europeans (Eur). Afr, Africans; Chn, Chinese.

(B) iES plotted against physical distance, back to back for Europeans and Africans.

(C) Signals of positive selection shown in the plot of Rsb (European/African) against physical distance.
