Scans for positive selection in human populations have identified hundreds of sites across the genome with evidence of recent adaptation. These signatures often overlap across populations, but the question of how often these overlaps represent a single ancestral event remains unresolved. If a single positive selection event spread across many populations, the same sweeping haplotype should appear in each population and the selective pressure could be common across diverse populations and environments. Identifying such shared selective events would be of fundamental interest, pointing to genomic loci and human traits important in recent history across the globe. Additionally, genomic annotations that recently became available could help attach these signatures to a potential gene and molecular phenotype that may have been selected across multiple populations. We performed a scan for positive selection using the integrated haplotype score on 20 populations, and compared sweeping haplotypes using the haplotype-clustering capability of fastPHASE to create a catalog of shared and unshared overlapping selective sweeps in these populations. Using additional genomic annotations, we connect these multi-population sweep overlaps with potential biological mechanisms at several loci, including potential new sites of adaptive introgression, the glycophorin locus associated with malarial resistance, and the alcohol dehydrogenase cluster associated with alcohol dependency.
