    Department of Evolution, Genomics and Systematics, Uppsala University, SE 752 36 Uppsala, Sweden
    Genetics 183:337-45. 2009
    ..Our results are consistent with the function of FLC as a major repressor of flowering in Arabidopsis thaliana and imply that nonfunctionalization of duplicate genes could provide an important source of phenotypic variation...
  3. doi request reprint Coalescent-based analysis distinguishes between allo- and autopolyploid origin in Shepherd's Purse (Capsella bursa-pastoris)
    Kate R St Onge
    Department of Evolutionary Functional Genomics, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden
    Mol Biol Evol 29:1721-33. 2012
    ..Second, we used Approximate Bayesian Computation to compare an allopolyploid and an autopolyploid model. Both analyses led to the conclusion that C. bursa-pastoris originated less than 1 Ma by doubling of the C. grandiflora genome...
  4. doi request reprint Genetic architecture and adaptive significance of the selfing syndrome in Capsella
    Tanja Slotte
    Department of Evolutionary Biology, Evolutionary Biology Centre, Uppsala University, Norbyv 18D, SE 752 36 Uppsala, Sweden
    Evolution 66:1360-74. 2012
    ..Our study is an important step toward characterizing the genetic basis and evolutionary forces underlying the evolution of the selfing syndrome in a genetically accessible model system...
  5. pmc Genomic determinants of protein evolution and polymorphism in Arabidopsis
    Tanja Slotte
    Department of Evolutionary Biology, Evolutionary Biology Centre, Uppsala University, Sweden
    Genome Biol Evol 3:1210-9. 2011
    ..Our results are important for a general understanding of the determinants of rates of protein evolution and the impact of selection on patterns of polymorphism and divergence...

    Kate R St Onge
    Department of Plant Ecology and Evolution, Uppsala University, Norbyvagen 18D, 752 36 Uppsala, Sweden
    Mol Ecol 20:3306-20. 2011
    ..However, our results also clearly show that a combination of past and present processes, some of which are not affected by mating system, is needed to explain the differences between C. rubella and C. grandiflora...
  7. pmc Evolutionary consequences of self-fertilization in plants
    Stephen I Wright
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada
    Proc Biol Sci 280:20130133. 2013
    ..In addition, there is growing evidence that transitions to selfing may themselves be drivers of speciation, and future studies of diversification and speciation should investigate this further...
  8. pmc Differential expression of genes important for adaptation in Capsella bursa-pastoris (Brassicaceae)
    Tanja Slotte
    Department of Evolution, Genomics and Systematics, Uppsala University, SE 752 36 Uppsala, Sweden
    Plant Physiol 145:160-73. 2007
    ..We conclude that genes involved in regulation of the circadian clock, such as CCA1 and TOC1, are strong candidates for the evolution of adaptive flowering time variation in C. bursa-pastoris...
