Finally, our manuscript entitled “Balancing selection on a Regulatory Region Exhibiting Ancient Variation That Predates Human–Neandertal Divergence” was published in PLoS Genetics. You can find it here… It is Open Access.

Also, link to the post regarding the manuscript in Dienekes’ Anthropology Blog. Note the several interesting points that commentators were raising.

Another recent blog post in discusses some of the issues raised in the paper. I am not sure if I agree with the interpretation of the data, but there are some interesting thoughts in there as well. Regardless the accuracy of our interpretation of the interesting genetic variation at this locus, I am glad the paper raises some discussion.
