A spatially aware likelihood test to detect sweeps from haplotype distributions

Zachary Szpiech & Michael DeGiorgio
The inference of positive selection in genomes is a problem of great interest in evolutionary genomics. By identifying putative regions of the genome that contain adaptive mutations, we are able to learn about the biology of organisms and their evolutionary history. Here we introduce a composite likelihood method that identifies recently completed or ongoing positive selection by searching for extreme distortions in the spatial distribution of the haplotype frequency spectrum along the genome relative to...

Data from: Evaluating temporal and spatial transferability of a tidal inundation model for foraging waterbirds

Marisa Martinez, Leonardo Calle, Stephanie Romanach & Dale Gawlik
For ecosystem models to be applicable outside their context of development, temporal and spatial transferability must be demonstrated. This presents a challenge for modeling intertidal ecosystems where spatiotemporal variation arises at multiple scales. Models specializing in tidal dynamics are generally inhibited from having wider ecological applications by coarse spatiotemporal resolution or high user competency. The Tidal Inundation Model of Shallow-water Availability (TiMSA) uniquely simulates tides to empirically derive a time-integrated measure of availability for a...

DEMOCRATIZING THE ECONOMY OR INTRODUCING ECONOMIC RISK? GIG WORK DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Daniel Auguste, Stephen Roll & Mathieu Despard
Though the growth of the gig economy has coincided with increased economic precarity in the new economy, we know less about the extent to which gig work (compared with other self-employment arrangements and non-gig work) may fuel economic insecurity among American households. We fill this gap in the literature drawing on a sample of 4,756 workers from a unique national survey capturing economic hardships among non-standard workers like app-and platform-based gig and other self-employed workers...
