Evidence for Hitchhiking of Deleterious Mutations within the Human Genome

Figure 4

The ratio of deleterious to neutral nonsynonymous SNPs declines as a function of distance to the nearest hitchhiking region.

Hitchhiking regions were defined using the European population by iHS (A) or Rsb (B). Sample size is indicated by circle size. Green circles represent iHS and Rsb hitchhiking regions.
