Rapid Evolution of Enormous, Multichromosomal Genomes in Flowering Plant Mitochondria with Exceptionally High Mutation Rates

Theories Genome size and complexity variation has been a long-term debate during the last decades. In multi-cellular eukaryotes, genome expansion is a consequence of noncoding DNA proliferation [1]. Several theories have emerged to explain variation in genome size and complexity. … Continue reading

Distinct signatures of diversifying selection revealed by genome analysis of respiratory tract and invasive bacterial populations (Shea et al, PNAS 2011)

Diversifying selection is a form of natural selection where intermediate values of a trait become less represented within a population, in favour of extreme values; a process that may subdivide a population between specialized niches and eventually lead to speciation. … Continue reading
