Evolution of trinucleotide microsatellite sequence variation across the Polistinae, a social wasp subfamily
I examined sequences of 3 microsatellite loci that were derived from Polistes bellicosus investigated their evolution in 78 species from four tribes in the Polistinae subfamily of wasps. I found that the basic repeat ...
Polymorphism of microsatellites in coding regions of Dictyostelium discoideum
Microsatellites are repetitive DNA sequences with high rate of slippage mutations, which cause changes in length. As expected by the neutral theory of molecular evolution the level of polymorphism of these sequences is ...
Genotypic diversity and population structure in Dictyostelium discoideum
Current population genetics literature presumes a lack of population structure in microorganisms due to their large population sizes, ubiquitous dispersal, and absence of geographic barriers. Contrary to this, we found ...
A test of captive breeding strategies using the housefly, Musca domestica as a model system
Inbreeding depression in small isolated populations is a major concern in conservation breeding research. While outbreeding can relieve the symptoms of inbreeding depression in small populations, outbred populations can ...
