Modern humans dispersed into East Asia approximately 40K years ago and genetically adapted to unprecedentedenvironmental conditions. Signatures of local genetic adaptations, which are engraved in our genome, can bedetected using population genomics approaches. Human genome variation data have enabled a comprehensive searchfor genetic variants showing such signatures as well as for those associated with phenotypic variation. Although ourknowledge about local genetic adaptations has increased due to recent research efforts, little is known about whatselective pressures acted on the selected variants.
