Olfactory receptor genes, under selection or random drift?The olfactory receptor genes are in different state in dogs and wolf
Such a unique population history made it a good model to study selection and random drift,especially difference in artificial selection and natural selection. This result is a little strange,because the ecological niche has changed greatly after domestication and the olfactory receptor gene family is under strong selection,the segregating pseudogenes are important genes in the birth-and-death process for olfactory...
