(2017-05-05) – New bioRxiv preprint on effects of mating system on selection

In this preprint, we investigate the effects of mating system and demographic history on the efficacy of purifying selection in Arabis alpina. Specifically, we contrast genomic patterns in self-incompatible outcrossing, mixed-mating and highly selfing populations, using population genomic analyses of genome resequencing data.
