A high-resolution map of human evolutionary constraint using 29 mammals

The comparison of related genomes has emerged as a powerful lens for genome interpretation. Here we report the sequencing and comparative analysis of 29 eutherian genomes. We confirm that at least

Evolution of genes and genomes on the Drosophila phylogeny

These genome sequences augment the formidable genetic tools that have made Drosophila melanogaster a pre-eminent model for animal genetics, and will further catalyse fundamental research on mechanisms of development, cell biology, genetics, disease, neurobiology, behaviour, physiology and evolution.


The mapping results and the population data indicate that the dependent lineages have been initially formed through hybridization at different points in time but the role of introgression has been insignificant in their later evolution.

Transcriptome analyses of primitively eusocial wasps reveal novel insights into the evolution of sociality and the origin of alternative phenotypes

These genomic resources for aculeate wasps and first transcriptome-wide insights into the origin of castes bring us closer to a more general understanding of eusocial evolution and how phenotypic diversity arises from the same genome.

Temporal patterns of fruit fly (Drosophila) evolution revealed by mutation clocks.

The analysis of 2977 pairwise sequence comparisons from 176 nuclear genes reveals a long-term fruit fly mutation clock ticking at a rate of 11.1 mutations per kilobase pair per Myr.

Gene Family Evolution across 12 Drosophila Genomes

The results demonstrate that the apparent stasis in total gene number among species has masked rapid turnover in individual gene gain and loss, and it is likely that this genomic revolving door has played a large role in shaping the morphological, physiological, and metabolic differences among species.

A chromatin link to caste identity in the carpenter ant Camponotus floridanus

It is proposed that epigenetic mechanisms that modify chromatin structure may help orchestrate the generation and maintenance of polyphenic caste morphology and social behavior in ants.

Pervasive Natural Selection in the Drosophila Genome?

Analyses of genetic variation within and between species reveal that much of the Drosophila genome is under purifying selection, and thus of functional importance, and that a large fraction of coding and noncoding differences between species are adaptive.

New families of human regulatory RNA structures identified by comparative analysis of vertebrate genomes.

This work develops a comparative method, EvoFam, for genome-wide identification of families of regulatory RNA structures, based on primary sequence and secondary structure similarity, and applies it to a 41-way genomic vertebrate alignment.
