Genomic Islands of Speciation in Anopheles gambiae
The African malaria mosquito, Anopheles gambiae sensu stricto (A. gambiae), provides a unique opportunity to study the evolution of reproductive isolation because it is divided into two sympatric,Expand

Extensive Sex-Specific Nonadditivity of Gene Expression in Drosophila melanogaster
Assessment of the degree to which gene expression is additive and heritable has important implications for understanding the maintenance of variation, adaptation, phenotypic divergence, and theExpand

New estimates of the rates and effects of mildly deleterious mutation in Drosophila melanogaster.
The genomic rate and distribution of effects of deleterious mutations are important parameters in evolutionary theory. The most detailed information comes from the work of Mukai and Ohnishi, whoExpand

Common pattern of evolution of gene expression level and protein sequence in Drosophila.
Sequence divergence scaled by variation within species has been used to infer the action of selection upon individual genes. Applying this approach to expression, we compared whole-genome whole-bodyExpand

Population resequencing reveals local adaptation of Arabidopsis lyrata to serpentine soils
A powerful way to map functional genomic variation and reveal the genetic basis of local adaptation is to associate allele frequency across the genome with environmental conditions. Serpentine soils,Expand

Sex-specific quantitative trait loci affecting longevity in Drosophila melanogaster.
Senescence, the decline in survivorship and fertility with increasing age, is a near-universal property of organisms. Senescence and limited lifespan are thought to arise because weak naturalExpand

Quantitative trait loci responsible for variation in sexually dimorphic traits in Drosophila melanogaster.
To understand the mechanisms of morphological evolution and species divergence, it is essential to elucidate the genetic basis of variation in natural populations. Sexually dimorphic characters,Expand

Sure facts, speculations, and open questions about the evolution of transposable element copy number
Transposable elements (TEs) are sequences capable of multiplying in their host's genome. They survive by increasing copy numbers due to transpositions, and natural selection washes them out becauseExpand

High-resolution mapping of quantitative trait loci for sternopleural bristle number in Drosophila melanogaster.
We have mapped quantitative trait loci (QTL) harboring naturally occurring allelic variation for Drosophila bristle number. Lines with high (H) and low (L) sternopleural bristle number were derivedExpand

Effects of single P-element insertions on bristle number and viability in Drosophila melanogaster.
Single P-element mutagenesis was used to construct 1094 lines with P[lArB] inserts on all three major chromosomes in an isogenic background previously free of P elements. The effects of insertions onExpand
