    Demographic history mediates the effect of stratification on polygenic scores

    Arslan A Zaidi, Iain Mathieson
    Correction for stratification in genome-wide association studies should be informed by the demographic history of the sample.

    Background selection and biased gene conversion affect more than 95% of the human genome and bias demographic inferences

    Fanny Pouyet et al.
    Background selection and GC-biased gene conversion impact the human genome to a much larger extent than previously recognized in low and high recombination rate regions, respectively.

    A variant-centric perspective on geographic patterns of human allele frequency variation

    Arjun Biddanda et al.
    New tools for visualizing population genetic data can provide a more direct understanding of levels of differentiation among human populations.

    Mummified baboons reveal the far reach of early Egyptian mariners

    Nathaniel J Dominy et al.
    The fabled land of Punt is mapped for the first time using quantitative methods from the disciplines of primatology, geochemistry, and geography.

    Diminished responses to bodily threat and blunted interoception in suicide attempters

    Danielle C DeVille et al.
    People who have attempted suicide exhibit blunted sensory processing during breathing and pain perturbations, as well as lower heartbeat perception accuracy and reduced mid/posterior insula activity during interoceptive attention.

    Relative demographic susceptibility does not explain the extinction chronology of Sahul’s megafauna

    Corey JA Bradshaw et al.
    There is no relationship between the demographic susceptibility to extinction and the estimated extinction chronology among Sahul’s megafauna, suggesting that human choices, a species’ ecological requirements, and/or random climate variation instead determined the extinction chronology.

    A community-maintained standard library of population genetic models

    Jeffrey R Adrion et al.
    The stdpopsim library, a community-driven open source project, is presented which provides easy access to a standard catalog of published simulation models for population genetics aimed at field-wide standardization.

    Effectiveness of traveller screening for emerging pathogens is shaped by epidemiology and natural history of infection

    Katelyn M Gostic et al.
    Pathogen natural history, epidemiological knowledge, human behavior and epidemic progression determine whether symptom screening and questionnaires are effective barriers to geographic spread of infection by travelers.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Insights into the evolution of social systems and species from baboon studies

    Julia Fischer et al.
    Wild baboons are an excellent model to study complex evolutionary processes such as speciation and hybridization, as well as the links between sociality, longevity and reproductive success.

    The rise and fall of the ancient northern pike master sex-determining gene

    Qiaowei Pan et al.
    Tracing the evolution of an old master sex determination gene reveals a diversity of sex determination transitions, including a complete Y chromosome loss, among an old teleost order (Esociformes).
