    PLoS Genet 2:e186. 2006
    ..In contrast, for levels of LD, the signature is even stronger if recurrent beneficial mutation plays a role. We suggest a variant of existing LD tests that increases their power to detect this signature...

    Pleuni S Pennings
    Section of Evolutionary Biology, Department of Biology II, Ludwig Maximilians University Munich, Planegg Martinsried, Germany
    Mol Biol Evol 23:1076-84. 2006
    ..We find that so-called "soft sweeps," where multiple ancestral haplotypes appear in a sample, are likely for biologically realistic values of mutation or migration rates...

    Joachim Hermisson
    Section of Evolutionary Biology, Department of Biology II, Ludwig Maximilians University Munich, Germany
    Genetics 169:2335-52. 2005
    ..We find that soft sweeps with weaker selective footprints are likely under both scenarios if the mutation rate and/or the selection coefficient is high...

    ..The results demonstrate how even in a simple model, the evolutionary outcome depends in a complex way on ecological and genetic parameters...
