Fig. 6

Detection of outlier SNPs in the AVPR1A gene using BayeScan. BayeScan indicates ‘very strong’ evidence for selection (the vertical line corresponds to log10(BF) > 1.5) for the two loci rs344622 and rs7308855. Log 10(q value) are shown on the x-axis, F ST -values on the y axis. F ST : locus-specific genetic divergence among human populations. Log10(q-value): decision factor in logarithmic scale (base 10) to determine selection
