  • The relationship between the selection coefficients, s, and locus-specific effects αi for a background FST of 0.1 is shown. The second and third columns show the FST's of the loci under selection and were obtained from Figure 2 in Beaumont and Balding (2004). The fourth column shows the α-values for a given FST under selection and is obtained from Figure 2.
