Multilocus test for nuclear introgression between Macaca mulatta and M fascicularis: Evidence for gene flow in macaques
Introgression due to hybridization is important for our understanding of species divergence. In this study, we analyze potential introgression between Macaca mulatta and M fascicularis using DNA sequences from 19 genes. ...
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 ...
Fitness consequences of genetic and phenotypic chimeras in the social amoeba, Dictyostelium discoideum
Multicellular organisms regularly eliminate unfit or harmful cells in the process of normal development. This high level of cooperation is maintained because all cells within the organism are genetically identical and thus, ...
