Hi all,

We had a good time today discussing the height GWAS paper and decided to go ahead and read the paper by Jeremy Berg and Graham Coop about detecting polygenic adaptation using GWAS hits:

Note that Jeremy and Graham have also written a blog post:

Looking forward to talking with you all about this cool work next week!

Best,
Josh
