I am working on dense genotype data trying to detect signals of positive selection.

I recently estimated the iHS statistic of my sample using the rehh package in R. Now I also want to try another test. I've seen publications using, besides iHS, the XP-EHH statistic and Rsb which are both based on extended haplotype homozigosity tests compared between different population. It looked to me that they are very similar.

Has anyone tried using these statistics? And in that case did you get different results, or better results with one?

Thank you in advance!
