Data from: Recombination and hitchhiking of deleterious alleles

Matthew Hartfield & Sarah P. Otto
When new advantageous alleles arise and spread within a population, deleterious alleles at neighbouring loci can hitchhike alongside them and spread to fixation in areas of low recombination, introducing a fixed mutation load. We use branching processes and diffusion equations to calculate the probability that a deleterious allele hitchhikes and fixes alongside an advantageous mutant. As expected, the probability of fixation of a deleterious hitchhiker rises with the selective advantage of the sweeping allele and...
