Mitochondria and the W chromosome: Low variability on the W chromosome in birds is more likely to indicate selection on mitochondrial genes

TLDR
Low variability on the W chromosome in birds is more likely to indicate selection on mitochondrial genes than on other W chromosome genes, according to a study of mitochondrial genes in birds.

GENETIC VARIATION AND POPULATION STRUCTURE IN WILD ISOLATES OF Caenorhabditis elegans COLLECTED FROM CALIFORNIA by ALIVIA DEY

TLDR
The finding of a strong population structure and high linkage disequilibrium both within and between chromosomes was also concurrent with the findings from other wild isolates, elucidate the extra-ordinary evolutionary dynamics of these sets of worm from the wild.

Molecular signatures for sex in the Placozoa

TLDR
Molecular evidence for sexual reproduction within one clade of the Placozoa is described, establishing that sex is indeed present in this phylum.

Recombination shapes the natural population structure of the hyperthermophilic archaeon Sulfolobus islandicus.

TLDR
It is proposed that frequent recombination among closely related individuals prevents periodic selection from purging diversity and provides a fundamental cohesive mechanism within this and perhaps other archaeal species.

Population genetic structure and outcrossing rate of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh.

TLDR
The population genetic structure of Arabidopsis thaliana was investigated in and among 16 British populations by means of an electrophoretic survey of nine enzyme systems and there was no evidence of a division between English and Scottish populations based on genetic distance.

The effect of breeding systems and pollination vectors on the genetic variation of small plant populations within an agricultural landscape

TLDR
The cereal fields separating the populations may function as conduits rather than barriers to pollen dispersed by wind, and pollinating insects may have no problems moving between patches at this scale, thus alleviating the danger of genetic erosion associated with small population size.

Genetic population structure and breeding systems in arionid slugs (Mollusca: Pulmonata)

TLDR
Electrophoresis and biochemical staining were used to analyse genetic variation in enzymes in nine species of terrestrial slugs of the genus Arion from 58 localities in the British Isles to determine the genetic structures and breeding systems of populations of the species of Arion introduced to North America.

Four evolutionary strata on the human X chromosome.

TLDR
The ages of individual X-Y gene pairs and the locations of their X members on the X chromosome were found to be highly correlated and age decreased in stepwise fashion from thedistal long arm to the distal short arm in at least four "evolutionary strata".
