Population Genomics of Sub-Saharan Drosophila melanogaster: African Diversity and Non-African Admixture
Mean sequencing depth is correlated with genetic distance (A) and genomic coverage (B). African core genomes with data from all major chromosome arms are depicted. The effect of depth on genetic distance applies whether genomes are compared to the published reference genome (blue) or the Zambia ZI population sample (red). Subsequent analyses focused largely on “primary core” genomes with >25X depth.
