The most viewed posts on Haldane’s Sieve in June 2014 were:
- Author post: Inferring human population size and separation history from multiple genome sequences. Stephan Schiffels discusses his paper on a new method for learning about history from multiple whole genome sequences.
- Nanopore Sequencing of the phi X 174 genome. Laszlo et al. present a new approach to DNA sequencing using nanopores.
- Power analysis of artificial selection experiments using efficient whole genome simulation of quantitative traits. Kessner and Novembre present a simulation study to help guide the design of artificial selection experiments.
- Author post: Long non-coding RNAs as a source of new peptides. Mar Albà describes her preprint on the role of long non-coding RNAs in the evolution of new protein-coding genes.
- Natural selection helps explain the small range of genetic variation within species. Corbett-Detig et al. analyze genetic maps and polymorphism data across 39 species to conclude that natural selection plans an important role in constraining polymorphism levels.
