DeGiorgio, Michael; Huber, Christian D.; Hubisz, Melissa J.; Hellmann, Ines and Nielsen, Rasmus (2016): SWEEPFINDER2: increased sensitivity, robustness and flexibility. In: Bioinformatics, Vol. 32, No. 12: pp. 1895-1897

SWEEPFINDER is a widely used program that implements a powerful likelihood-based method for detecting recent positive selection, or selective sweeps. Here, we present SWEEPFINDER2, an extension of SWEEPFINDER with increased sensitivity and robustness to the confounding effects of mutation rate variation and background selection. Moreover, SWEEPFINDER2 has increased flexibility that enables the user to specify test sites, set the distance between test sites and utilize a recombination map.
