The field of population genetics is rapidly moving into population genomics as the quantity of data generated by high‐throughput sequencing platforms increases. In this study, we used restriction‐site‐associated DNA sequencing (RADSeq) to recover genomewide genotypes from 70 white‐beaked (Lagenorhynchus albirostris) and 43 Atlantic white‐sided dolphins (L. acutus) gathered throughout their north‐east Atlantic distribution range. Both species are at a high risk of being negatively affected by… 

Genome-wide single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) for a model invasive ascidian Botryllus schlosseri

The authors' developed SNP resource would provide future studies the genome-wide genetic markers for genetic and genomic investigations, such as genetic bases of micro-evolutionary processes responsible for invasion success, as well as the estimate of observed heterozygosity (HO), expected heterozygosa (HE), nucleotide diversity (π), Wright’s inbreeding coefficient (FIS) and effective population size (Ne).

Ecological population genomics in the marine environment.

The magnitudes of the genetic differences suggest that hundreds of loci with significant differences are due to positive selective pressures, and suggest that natural selection is effectively altering allele frequencies at 100s of loco in marine populations.

Population structure of Apodemus flavicollis and comparison to Apodemus sylvaticus in northern Poland based on RAD-seq

This study demonstrates the feasibility of ddRAD-seq in Apodemus and provides the first insights into the population genomics of the species.

Complex signatures of genomic variation of two non-model marine species in a homogeneous environment

It is suggested that future population genomic studies should expand from focusing on model organisms and/or studying heterogeneous regions to better understand the evolutionary processes shaping current and future biodiversity patterns, particularly when used in a comparative phylogeographic context.

Genomic associations with bill length and disease reveal drift and selection across island bird populations

The role of selection and drift in shaping genomic and phenotypic variation across recently separated populations of Berthelot's pipit, a passerine bird endemic to three archipelagos in the Atlantic, is examined.

Fine-scale population structure of common bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) in offshore and coastal waters of the US Gulf of Mexico

The finding of significant population structure in dolphins living in open-ocean waters augments the growing body of evidence indicating pelagic waters are not homogeneous even for highly mobile species.

Recent advances in conservation and population genomics data analysis

Some important themes that emerged during the workshop included the need for data visualization and its importance in finding problematic data, the effects of data filtering choices on downstream population genomic analyses, the increasing availability of whole‐genome sequencing, and the new challenges it presents.

Barcoding the largest animals on Earth: ongoing challenges and molecular solutions in the taxonomic identification of ancient cetaceans

The challenges with identifying whale bones through traditional anatomical methods, as well as the opportunities provided by new molecular analyses are reviewed, including high-throughput molecular approaches such as hybridization capture followed by next-generation sequencing as cost-effective approaches for enhancing the ecological informativeness of these ancient sample sets.

Inherent population structure determines the importance of filtering parameters for reduced representation sequencing analyses

The simulated and empirical results suggest that the effects of filtering choices indeed vary based on inherent levels of differentiation: specifically, choosing stringent filtering choices was important to detect distinct populations that were slightly differentiated, but not those that were highly differentiated.



Going where traditional markers have not gone before: utility of and promise for RAD sequencing in marine invertebrate phylogeography and population genomics

The utility of RAD‐seq approaches in burgeoning Nematostella research as well as in other cnidarian species, particularly corals and jellyfishes, are discussed to determine phylogeographic relationships of populations and identify regions of the genome undergoing selection.

A resource of genome‐wide single‐nucleotide polymorphisms generated by RAD tag sequencing in the critically endangered European eel

The generated SNP resource consisting of 82 425 loci and 376 918 associated SNPs provides a valuable tool for future population genetics and genomics studies and allows for targeting specific genes and particularly interesting regions of the eel genome.

Applicability of RAD‐tag genotyping for interfamilial comparisons: empirical data from two cetaceans

The results showed that, for this level of divergence, a large number of orthologous loci can still be genotyped using this approach, which is on par with two recent in silico studies.

Insights into genetic diversity, parentage, and group composition of Atlantic white-sided dolphins (Lagenorhynchus acutus) off the west of Ireland based on nuclear and mitochondrial genetic markers.

Investigation of nuclear and mitochondrial genetic variability of Atlantic white-sided dolphins that stranded from 1990 to 2006 along the west coast of Ireland revealed that dolphins within each group were mainly unrelated to each other, suggesting dispersal of both sexes from the natal group.

Two Different High Throughput Sequencing Approaches Identify Thousands of De Novo Genomic Markers for the Genetically Depleted Bornean Elephant

The approaches used here for marker development in a threatened species demonstrate the utility of high throughput sequencing technologies as a starting point for the development of genomic tools in a non-model species and in particular for a species with low genetic diversity.

Resolving postglacial phylogeography using high-throughput sequencing

This application of restriction site-associated DNA tags (RAD tags) reveals previously unresolved genetic structure and direction of evolution in the pitcher plant mosquito, Wyeomyia smithii, from a southern Appalachian Mountain refugium following recession of the Laurentide Ice Sheet at 22,000–19,000 B.P.

The influence of glacial epochs and habitat dependence on the diversity and phylogeography of a coastal dolphin species: Lagenorhynchus albirostris

The authors' data suggest a stepwise pattern of expansion, dependent on available coastal habitat, in a highly mobile marine mammal, the white-beaked dolphin, and it is evident that overall diversity was reduced, probably during the last glacial epoch.

A Robust, Simple Genotyping-by-Sequencing (GBS) Approach for High Diversity Species

A procedure for constructing GBS libraries based on reducing genome complexity with restriction enzymes (REs) is reported, which is simple, quick, extremely specific, highly reproducible, and may reach important regions of the genome that are inaccessible to sequence capture approaches.

Rapid SNP Discovery and Genetic Mapping Using Sequenced RAD Markers

The sequencing of restriction-site associated DNA (RAD) tags was described, which identified more than 13,000 SNPs, and three traits in two model organisms were mapped, using less than half the capacity of one Illumina sequencing run.

Double Digest RADseq: An Inexpensive Method for De Novo SNP Discovery and Genotyping in Model and Non-Model Species

This modified RADseq approach requires no prior genomic knowledge and achieves per-site and per-individual costs below that of current SNP chip technology, while requiring similar hands-on time investment, comparable amounts of input DNA, and downstream analysis times on the order of hours.
