Pervasive population genomic consequences of genome duplication in Arabidopsis arenosa (2019)
Journal Article
Monnahan, P., Kolář, F., Baduel, P., Sailer, C., Koch, J., Horvath, R., …Yant, L. (2019). Pervasive population genomic consequences of genome duplication in Arabidopsis arenosa. Nature Ecology and Evolution, 3, 457-468. doi:10.1038/s41559-019-0807-4

Ploidy-variable species allow direct inference of the effects of chromosome copy number on fundamental evolutionary processes. While an abundance of theoretical work suggests polyploidy should leave distinct population genomic signatures, empirical d... Read More

Evolution of gene expression levels in the male reproductive organs of Anopheles mosquitoes (2019)
Journal Article
Izquierdo, A., Fahrenberger, M., Persampieri, T., Benedict, M. Q., Giles, T., Catteruccia, F., …Dottorini, T. (2019). Evolution of gene expression levels in the male reproductive organs of Anopheles mosquitoes. Life Science Alliance, 2(1), doi:10.26508/lsa.201800191

Modifications in gene expression determine many of the phenotypic differentiations between closely related species. This is particularly evident in reproductive tissues, where evolution of genes is more rapid, facilitating the appearance of distinct... Read More
