This project provides R scripts implementing the local score approach, which aims at detecting significant regions in a genome sequence by the cumulation of single marker p-values. These scripts were developed by Fariello et al (2017) for the detection of genomic regions under adaptive selection using a between population differentiation (Fst like) approach, but they can be applied to any other type of study for which single-marker p-values along the genome are available.

See the "Docs" tab for more details and downloading the scripts.

Examples of input p-value files can be found in the "Files" tab. They were obtained by the analysis of two quail lines with the FLK test, as described in Fariello et al (2017).
