Congratulations Wes!  I can’t figure out how to attach the proof file here, so let me know if you have time to proofread and I’ll email a copy.  Is Wes using parameter correctly in the abstract?  Online early soon:

Genotyping by sequencing resolves shallow population structure to inform conservation of Chinook salmon
(Oncorhynchus tshawytscha)

Abstract
Recent advances in population genomics have made it possible to detect previously
unidentified structure, obtain more accurate estimates of demographic
parameters, and explore adaptive divergence, potentially revolutionizing the way
genetic data is used to manage wild populations. Here, we identified 10 944 single-
nucleotide polymorphisms using restriction-site-associated DNA (RAD)
sequencing to explore population structure, demography, and adaptive divergence
in five populations of Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) from
western Alaska. Patterns of population structure were similar to those of past
studies, but our ability to assign individuals back to their region of origin was
greatly improved (>90% accuracy for all populations). We also calculated effective
size with and without removing physically linked loci identified from a linkage
map, a novel method for nonmodel organisms. Estimates of effective size
were generally above 1000 and were biased downward when physically linked loci
were not removed. Outlier tests based on genetic differentiation identified 733
loci and three genomic regions under putative selection. These markers and
genomic regions are excellent candidates for future research and can be used to
create high-resolution panels for genetic monitoring and population assignment.
This work demonstrates the utility of genomic data to inform conservation in
highly exploited species with shallow population structure.
