One of the central goals of evolutionary biology is to
understand the genetic basis of adaptive evolution. The
availability of nearly complete genome sequences from a
variety of organisms has facilitated the collection of data on
naturally occurring genetic variation on the scale of
hundreds of loci to whole genomes. Such data have
changed the focus of molecular population genetics from
