A Conserved Supergene Locus Controls Colour Pattern Diversity in Heliconius Butterflies
We studied whether similar developmental genetic mechanisms are involved in both convergent and divergent evolution. Mimetic insects are known for their diversity of patterns as well as theirExpand

Evolutionary Novelty in a Butterfly Wing Pattern through Enhancer Shuffling
An important goal in evolutionary biology is to understand the genetic changes underlying novel morphological structures. We investigated the origins of a complex wing pattern found among AmazonianExpand

Mutation accumulation in chromosomal inversions maintains wing pattern polymorphism in a butterfly
While natural selection favours the fittest genotype, polymorphisms are maintained over evolutionary timescales in numerous species. Why these long-lived polymorphisms are often associated withExpand

Mutation load at a mimicry supergene sheds new light on the evolution of inversion polymorphisms.
Chromosomal inversions are ubiquitous in genomes and often coordinate complex phenotypes, such as the covariation of behavior and morphology in many birds, fishes, insects or mammals1-11. However,Expand

Development of microsatellite loci from a reference genome for the Neotropical butterfly Heliconius numata and its close relatives
The Neotropical butterfly Heliconius numata (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Heliconiinae) is known for its striking diversity of wing color patterns driven by the Müllerian mimicry of multiple localExpand

The effect of dominance on polymorphism in Müllerian mimic species
Dominance controls the phenotype of heterozygous individuals, and plays an important role in the maintenance of polymorphism. Here we focus on the dominance acting on warning-pattern polymorphism inExpand

Supergene evolution triggered by the introgression of a chromosomal inversion
Supergenes are groups of tightly linked loci whose variation is inherited as a single Mendelian locus and are a common genetic architecture for complex traits under balancing selection1. SupergeneExpand
