Population genetic tests have been employed to detect natural selection at suspected An. gambiae anti-malaria genes, but these tests have generally been compromised by the lack of demographically correct null models. Here, we used a coalescent simulation approach within a maximum likelihood framework to fit population growth, bottleneck and migration models to polymorphism data from Cameroonian An. gambiae.
