Distribution of mean Fst in 50kb windows centered around putatively functional sites. Polymorphic sites with Fst > =0.75 between dogs and wolves were classified according to their putative function. For each putatively functional site the mean Fst was calculated in a 50kb window centered on the site. A violin plot shows the distribution of mean Fst values for each category of functional site (5‘-UTR, 3‘-UTR, non-synonymous, splice site, stop gained, synonymous). Synonymous mutations were included as a category to show the expectation in the absence of positive selection
