← Evolution's Footprints in Human Genome Precisely Tracked Using New Approach

This article isn't very clear on whether these methods are useful primarily for finding out what genes are undergoing selection now or for finding which genes underwent selection in the evolution of modern humans. Surely the latter is more difficult and more interesting, yet the examples given were of genes where selection appears to be occurring now.
