Selective sweeping of BmEMEs during domesticated phases of the silkworm. Forty-four BmEMEs, 1–44, are grouped and represented by different colors, based on Additional file 2: Table S2. The scale number *1000 is equal to the length (bp) of the gene region. From the outer ring to the inner ring, are histograms of FST between wild and local silkworm and plots of RODdomesticated and lines of πlocal and πwild. The range of the y-axis of the histogram, plot, and lines is 0–0.9, 0–1, 0–0.05, and 0–0.05, respectively. Histograms of FST and plots of ROD in black together indicate the identified selective sweeps associated with domestication, i.e., the windows of the highest 1% FST wild_local, the highest 1% of RODdomesticated, and the lowest 5% of πlocallocal < 0.00095, FST wild_local > 0.75095, and RODdomesticated > 0.939). The gene with names indicates potential selected genes, which include the selective sweeps
