Abstract
The population of Madagascar arose from admixture of Austronesian and Bantu genetic backgrounds. Analyzing local ancestry in genomes of 700 Malagasy, Pierron et al. identify signals of recent positive selection for African ancestry in a region on chromosome 1 with implications for physiology and disease risk.
