RATES OF DIVERGENCE IN GENE EXPRESSION PROFILES OF PRIMATES, MICE, AND FLIES: STABILIZING SELECTION AND VARIABILITY AMONG FUNCTIONAL CATEGORIES
Abstract The extent to which natural selection shapes phenotypic variation has long been a matter of debate among those studying organic evolution. We studied the patterns of gene expressionExpand

Observations of cross-channel structure of flow in an energetic tidal channel
[1] Measurements of velocity and density profiles were made to describe the transverse structure of flow in Chacao Channel, Southern Chile (41.75°S), where typical tidal velocities are ∼4 m/s.Expand

Generation of a widespread Drosophila inversion by a transposable element.
Although polymorphic inversions in Drosophila are very common, the origin of these chromosomal rearrangements is unclear. The breakpoints of the cosmopolitan inversion 2j of D. buzzatii were clonedExpand

Silencing of a gene adjacent to the breakpoint of a widespread Drosophila inversion by a transposon-induced antisense RNA
Adaptive changes in nature occur by a variety of mechanisms, and Drosophila chromosomal inversions was one of the first studied examples. However, the precise genetic causes of the adaptive value ofExpand

The foldback-like transposon Galileo is involved in the generation of two different natural chromosomal inversions of Drosophila buzzatii.
Chromosomal inversions are the most common type of genome rearrangement in the genus Drosophila. Although the potential of transposable elements (TEs) for generating inversions has been repeatedlyExpand

Molecular characterization of two natural hotspots in the Drosophila buzzatii genome induced by transposon insertions.
Transposable elements (TEs) have been implicated in the generation of genetic rearrangements, but their potential to mediate changes in the organization and architecture of host genomes could be evenExpand

Identification of polymorphic inversions from genotypes
TLDR
We present a novel method to both identify polymorphic inversions from genome-wide genotype data and classify individuals as containing a normal or inverted allele. Expand

Increased cortical expression of two synaptogenic thrombospondins in human brain evolution.
Thrombospondins are extracellular-matrix glycoproteins implicated in the control of synaptogenesis and neurite growth. Previous microarray studies suggested that one gene of this family,Expand

A common 16p11.2 inversion underlies the joint susceptibility to asthma and obesity.
The prevalence of asthma and obesity is increasing worldwide, and obesity is a well-documented risk factor for asthma. The mechanisms underlying this association and parallel time trends remainExpand

InvFEST, a database integrating information of polymorphic inversions in the human genome
TLDR
We introduce InvFEST, a database combining multiple sources of information to generate a complete catalogue of non-redundant human polymorphic inversions. Expand
