ScienceDaily (Mar. 31, 2009) â Scientists at Penn State and the National
Institute of Genetics in Japan have demonstrated that several statistical
methods commonly used by biologists to detect natural selection at the
molecular level tend to produce incorrect results. "Our finding means that
hundreds of published studies on natural selection may have drawn incorrect
conclusions," said Masatoshi Nei, Penn State Evan Pugh Professor of Biology and
the team's leader. The team's results will be published in the Online Early
Edition of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences during
the week ending Friday 3 April 2009 and also in the journal's print edition at
a later date.
