Inferring human population size and separation history from multiple genome sequences

S Schiffels, R Durbin - Nature genetics, 2014 - nature.com
The availability of complete human genome sequences from populations across the world
has given rise to new population genetic inference methods that explicitly model ancestral
relationships under recombination and mutation. So far, application of these methods to
evolutionary history more recent than 20,000–30,000 years ago and to population
separations has been limited. Here we present a new method that overcomes these ...
