Strong Purifying Selection on the Odysseus Gene in Two Clades of Sibling Species of the Drosophila montium Species Subgroup


The Odysseus (OdsH) gene was duplicated from its ancestral neuron-expressed gene, unc-4, and then evolved very rapidly under strong positive Darwinian selection as a speciation gene causing hybrid-male sterility between closely related species of the Drosophila simulans clade. Has OdsH also experienced similar positive selection between Drosophila sibling… (More)
