Evidence of long-term gene flow and selection during domestication from analyses of Eurasian wild and domestic pig genomes

13:09 EDT 1 Sep 2015 | Nature Publishing

Laurent Frantz and colleagues report an analysis of 103 whole genomes from European and Asian wild boars and domestic pigs. They find evidence in support of a complex domestication model with gene flow from wild populations counteracted by recurrent artificial selection for traits important for domestication.
