Summary of thesis

Study how the genetic surfing of particular neutral or functional alleles affects surrounding genomic diversity during and after range expansions . Will try to distinguish distinguish between the effects of genetic surfing and selection on whole genome diversity. These results will be used to infer the processes that have affected the genomes of ancient and archaic individuals, using existing human genomic databases as well as ancient human genomes.
