  • a Parameter values were estimated under the complete-sweep CLR method using subsets of chromosomes carrying a beneficial allele generated under incomplete-sweep simulations.

  • Median and (10%, 90%) values for each estimate are shown; β = 0.7. Results are based on 1000 simulations for each parameter set.
