    • Computational approaches to species phylogeny inference and gene tree reconciliation 

      Nakhleh, Luay (2013)
      An intricate relationship exists between gene trees and species phylogenies, due to evolutionary processes that act on the genes within and across the branches of the species phylogeny. From an analytical perspective, gene ...
    • Evolution After Whole-genome Duplication: A Network Perspective 

      Zhu, Yun; Lin, Zhenguo; Nakhleh, Luay (2013)
      Gene duplication plays an important role in the evolution of genomes and interactomes. Elucidating how evolution after gene duplication interplays at the sequence and network level is of great interest. In this paper, we ...
    • The Genome of the Ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi and Its Implications for Cell Type Evolution 

      Ryan, Joseph F.; Pang, Kevin; Schnitzler, Christine E.; Nguyen, Anh-Dao; Moreland, R. Travis; Simmons, David K.; Koch, Bernard J.; Francis, Warren R.; Havlak, Paul; NISC Comparative Sequencing Program; Smith, Stephen A.; Putnam, Nicholas H.; Haddock, Steven H.D.; Dunn, Casey W.; Wolfsberg, Tyra G.; Mullikin, James C.; Martindale, Mark Q.; Baxevanis, Andreas D. (2013)
      An understanding of ctenophore biology is critical for reconstructing events that occurred early in animal evolution. Toward this goal, we have sequenced, assembled, and annotated the genome of the ctenophore Mnemiopsis ...
    • Nitrogen, biochar, and mycorrhizae: Alteration of the symbiosis and oxidation of the char surface 

      LeCroy, Chase; Masiello, Caroline A.; Rudgers, Jennifer A.; Hockaday, William C.; Silberg, Jonathan J. (2014)
      In some cases amending soil with biochar improves fertility, although the exact mechanisms through which biochar alters soil processes are not well understood. In other cases, however, biochar amendment can have no effect ...
