Microsatellites within genes: structure, function, and evolution.
Recently, increasingly more microsatellites, or simple sequence repeats (SSRs) have been found and characterized within protein-coding genes and their untranslated regions (UTRs). These data provideExpand

Microsatellites: genomic distribution, putative functions and mutational mechanisms: a review
Microsatellites, or tandem simple sequence repeats (SSR), are abundant across genomes and show high levels of polymorphism. SSR genetic and evolutionary mechanisms remain controversial. Here weExpand

  • 1 February 1978
Abstract Allozymic variation in natural populations of plants, animals, and humans based on studies published prior to early 1976 and involving 243 species, in which 14 or more loci were tested, isExpand

Adaptive Convergence and Divergence of Subterranean Mammals
Evolutionary theory should ideally specify the necessary and sufficient determinants of the convergent and divergent patterns that have evolved in subterranean mammals (i.e. mammals that haveExpand

The Evolutionary Significance of Genetic Diversity: Ecological, Demographic and Life History Correlates
The evolutionary significance of genetic diversity of proteins in nature remains controversial despite the numerous protein studies conducted electrophoretically during the last two decades.Expand

Retrotransposon BARE-1 and Its Role in Genome Evolution in the Genus Hordeum
The replicative retrotransposon life cycle offers the potential for explosive increases in copy number and consequent inflation of genome size. The BARE-1 retrotransposon family of barley isExpand

Multiple Genetic Processes Result in Heterogeneous Rates of Evolution within the Major Cluster Disease Resistance Genes in Lettucew⃞
Resistance Gene Candidate2 (RGC2) genes belong to a large, highly duplicated family of nucleotide binding site–leucine rich repeat (NBS-LRR) encoding disease resistance genes located at a singleExpand

Genome evolution of wild barley (Hordeum spontaneum) by BARE-1 retrotransposon dynamics in response to sharp microclimatic divergence.
The replicative spread of retrotransposons in the genome creates new insertional polymorphisms, increasing retrotransposon numbers and potentially both their share of the genome and genome size. TheExpand

Multilocus Structure of Natural Populations of HORDEUM SPONTANEUM.
The association of alleles among different loci was studied in natural populations of Hordeum spontaneum, the evolutionary progenitor of cultivated barley. The variance of the number of heterozygousExpand
