PhD thesis - Humans in an Adaptive World : Genetic and Epigenetic Responses to Environmental Challenges (2011-2015)

I did my PhD in population genomics and epigenomics. I studied the impact of the global environment on the genetic and epigenetic diversity of human populations. I investigated the role of a particular type of positive selection, selective sweeps, in shaping the human genome diversity. I also assessed the relative impact of genetic and environmental factors on the variation in DNA methylation profiles between human populations living in contrasted environments.
