Accuracy of allele frequency estimation using pooled RNA-Seq.
For nonmodel organisms, genome-wide information that describes functionally relevant variation may be obtained by RNA-Seq following de novo transcriptome assembly. While sequencing has becomeExpand

Development, validation and high-throughput analysis of sequence markers in nonmodel species.
DNA sequences derived from multiple regions of the nuclear genome are essential for historical inferences in the fields of phylogeography and phylogenetics. The appropriate markers should beExpand

Transcriptomics of Intralocus Sexual Conflict: Gene Expression Patterns in Females Change in Response to Selection on a Male Secondary Sexual Trait in the Bulb Mite
Intralocus sexual conflict (IASC) prevents males and females from reaching their disparate phenotypic optima and is widespread, but little is known about its genetic underpinnings. In RhizoglyphusExpand

Initial Molecular-Level Response to Artificial Selection for Increased Aerobic Metabolism Occurs Primarily through Changes in Gene Expression.
Experimental evolution combined with genome or transcriptome resequencing (Evolve and Resequence) represents a promising approach for advancing our understanding of the genetic basis of adaptation.Expand

De novo transcriptome assembly facilitates characterisation of fast-evolving gene families, MHC class I in the bank vole (Myodes glareolus)
The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) plays a central role in the adaptive immune response and is the most polymorphic gene family in vertebrates. Although high-throughput sequencing hasExpand

Genomic Response to Selection for Predatory Behavior in a Mammalian Model of Adaptive Radiation.
If genetic architectures of various quantitative traits are similar, as studies on model organisms suggest, comparable selection pressures should produce similar molecular patterns for variousExpand

Genomics of end-Pleistocene population replacement in a small mammal
Current species distributions at high latitudes are the product of expansion from glacial refugia into previously uninhabitable areas at the end of the last glaciation. The traditional view ofExpand

Expansion of frozen hybrids in guppy ectoparasite, Gyrodactylus turnbulli
Hybridization is one of the major factors contributing to the emergence of highly successful parasites. Hybrid vigor can play an important role in this process, but its contribution to theExpand
Functional divergence and population replacement in Britishbank voles
We describe the functional consequences of haemoglobin divergence between two British populations of the bank vole (Clethrionomys$glareolus), one that partially replaced the other during endVglacialExpand
