1. Vincent Bourret from Louis’ group presents a customized genome-scan approach able to pick up groups of outlier loci, all with little effect but together they exhibit linkage. They study selection during the marine phase of Atlantic salmon. They still ignore duplicated regions on the map ;-): http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com.offcampus.lib.washington.edu/doi/10.1111/mec.12798/abstract

2. Matt Hahn (and student) present an interesting simulation study redefining the definition of a “genomic island”: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/mec.12796/abstract
