Table 2 Evidence for within and between breed selection at breed-defining (type 1) loci

From: Selection for complex traits leaves little or no classic signatures of selection

Locus Evidence for selection*  
Within breed Differentiation between breeds3

  1. *windows encompassing loci and identified in the top 5% of within or between breed measures of selection. Measures of selection were 1haplotype homozygosity (HAPH), 2integrated haplotype score (|iHS|) and 3F ST .
