Genome-wide analysis of a long-term evolution experiment with Drosophila

For decades, most researchers have provided some general insights into the nature of adaptation in asexually reproducing populations with small genome, such as bacteria and yeast. They assumed that sexual species evolve the same way these populations do, i.e. their … Continue reading

Genome-wide analysis of a long-term evolution experiment with Drosophila

In this paper, Molly K. Burke and his collogues did an experimental evolution systems, which allows the genomic study of adaptation. They selected outbred, sexually reproducing, replicated populations of Drosophila melanogaster, which experienced over 600 generations of laboratory selection for … Continue reading

Parallel evolution in adaptive phenotypes: the case of the threespine stickleback

How do adaptive phenotypes evolve? This question, despite the increasing availability of genomic and other molecular data, remains still largely unanswered. Among the different aspects investigated, a major point of discussion in this topic is the extent of the contribution … Continue reading
