Some complexities in interpreting apparent effects of hitchhiking: A commentary on Gompert et al. (2022).

Abstract

We write to address recent claims by regarding the potentially important and underappreciated phenomena of "indirect selection," the observation that neutral regions may be affected by natural selection. We argue both that this phenomenon-generally known as genetic hitchhiking-is neither new nor poorly studied, and that the patterns described by the authors have multiple alternative explanations.
