Hunters of neolithic plant diets
Alleles diminishing biosynthesis of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids were adaptive to animal-based diets in pre-Neolithic hunter-gatherers, while opposite alleles enhancing biosynthesis were adaptive to plant-based diets in recent farmers. Identifying genetic adaptation to historical diets is a recent research focus in the Keinan lab at Cornell University. In that study, we found that an insertion-deletion indel polymorphism in a fatty acid desaturase gene, FADS2, was under positive selection in South Asia, Africa and parts of East Asia. The insertion allele was adaptive to the local plant-based diets by enhancing the biosynthesis of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids LCPUFAs from plant-derived short-chain precursors. But we suspected that our original tests might not have enough power. Our original idea was simple: we would impute computationally infer the indel into aDNA and then apply the same aDNA-based test. After a deep dive into the aDNA literature and a few days of data crunching, we got the result: no signal for the indel. So, our original idea failed In hindsight, we didn’t have high qualify reference data for imputing this indel.
