Abstract

Understanding the genetic basis of adaptive evolution, and how natural selection has shaped patterns of polymorphism and divergence within and between species are enduring goals of evolutionary genetics. In this project, I want to use whole genome re-sequencing data to characterize the genomic signatures of natural selection along different evolutionary timescales in several Populus species.
