Heterozygosity-fitness correlations and associative overdominance: new detection method and proof of principle in the Iberian wild boar.

Abstract:

Heterozygosity-fitness correlations (HFC) may result from a genome-wide process--inbreeding--or local effects within the genome. The majority of empirical studies reporting HFCs have attributed correlations to inbreeding depression. However, HFCs are unlikely to be caused by inbreeding depression because heterozygosity measured at a small number of neutral markers is unlikely to accurately capture a genome-wide pattern. Testing the strengths of localized effects caused by associative overdomi...
