The consequences of an introgression event

Mol Ecol. 2018 Dec;27(24):4973-4975. doi: 10.1111/mec.14950.


Hanemaaijer et al. (Molecular Ecology, 27, 2018) describe the genetic consequences of the introgression of an insecticide resistance allele into a mosquito population. Linked alleles initially increased, but many of these later declined. It is hard to determine whether this decline was due to counter-selection, rather than simply to chance.
