Statistical analysis of natural selection in RNA virus populations

Abstract:

A key goal of modern evolutionary biology is the identification of genes or genome regions that have been targeted by natural selection. Methods for detecting natural selection utilise the information sampled in contemporary gene sequences and test for deviation from the null hypothesis of neutrality. One such method is the McDonald Kreitman test (MK test), which detects the the molecular 'footprint' left by natural selection by considering the frequency of observed mutations within the sa...
