The Amborella Genome and the Evolution of Flowering Plants

Amborella trichopoda, an endemic species to New Caledonia, is the most early-diverging taxa of flowering plants (angiosperms, Figure 1). As such, the sequencing of its genome was of considerable interest for the investigation of the emergence and evolution of this … Continue reading

Single and independent mutations lead to an adaptive and complex color phenotype in deer mice living on the light-colored soils of the Nebraska Sand Hills

Pleiotropy of genes is often the main solution to explain genetic basis of complex phenotypes (i.e., those composed of multiple traits). But dissection of those genes or loci are rarely studied, and it remains unclear which of single pleiotropic mutations or … Continue reading

Patterns of population epigenomic diversity

In my point of vue, this paper is interesting because it’s in my domain of interest but very difficult to understand because they put lot of technical word without definition and they say very often see references, as it’s described … Continue reading
