Genetic Adaptation in New York City Rats

Our latest collaboration on studying the Genetic Adaptation in NYC Rats is now on BioRxiv! Here we apply the G12 statistic, which can detect hard and soft sweeps from unphased data, to 29 whole genomes from NYC rats. We find intriguing signals of adaptation to urbanized environments in this population. Check out this perspective published in Nature on our work!
