The Ecoresponsive Genome of Daphnia pulex
The Daphnia genome reveals a multitude of genes and shows adaptation through gene family expansions. We describe the draft genome of the microcrustacean Daphnia pulex, which is only 200 megabases andExpand

The genome of the green anole lizard and a comparative analysis with birds and mammals
The evolution of the amniotic egg was one of the great evolutionary innovations in the history of life, freeing vertebrates from an obligatory connection to water and thus permitting the conquest ofExpand

Rapid, local adaptation of zooplankton behavior to changes in predation pressure in the absence of neutral genetic changes
Organisms producing resting stages provide unique opportunities for reconstructing the genetic history of natural populations. Diapausing seeds and eggs often are preserved in large numbers,Expand

Sequencing and de novo analysis of a coral larval transcriptome using 454 GSFlx
BackgroundNew methods are needed for genomic-scale analysis of emerging model organisms that exemplify important biological questions but lack fully sequenced genomes. For example, there is an urgentExpand

Functional and Evolutionary Insights from the Genomes of Three Parasitoid Nasonia Species
Parasitoid Wasp Genomes Parasitoid wasps, which prey on and reproduce in host insect species, play important roles in plant herbivore interactions, and may provide valuable tools in the biologicalExpand

The systematics of North American Daphnia (Crustacea: Anomopoda): a molecular phylogenetic approach.
Despite extensive studies on the ecology and evolution of the freshwater microcrustacean Daphnia, there is little understanding of the evolutionary history of the genus. Past attempts atExpand

Genomes of the rice pest brown planthopper and its endosymbionts reveal complex complementary contributions for host adaptation
BackgroundThe brown planthopper, Nilaparvata lugens, the most destructive pest of rice, is a typical monophagous herbivore that feeds exclusively on rice sap, which migrates over long distances.Expand

Function and Evolution of DNA Methylation in Nasonia vitripennis
The parasitoid wasp Nasonia vitripennis is an emerging genetic model for functional analysis of DNA methylation. Here, we characterize genome-wide methylation at a base-pair resolution, and compareExpand

The genomic landscape of rapid repeated evolutionary adaptation to toxic pollution in wild fish
Mapping genetic adaptations to pollution Many organisms have evolved tolerance to natural and human-generated toxins. Reid et al. performed a genomic analysis of killifish, geographically separateExpand
