UMR8120 de Génétique Végétale, INRA Univ Paris Sud CNRS AgroParisTech, Ferme du Moulon, Gif sur Yvette, France
J Evol Biol 21:541-50. 2008..Under particular conditions, aggregation is maximized and apparent mutation hotspots resulting in a 50-fold increase in polymorphic sites density can occur. In similar conditions, long distance LD can be detected...

Station de Genetique Vegetale UMR C8120, Gif sur Yvette, France
Mol Biol Evol 21:1214-25. 2004..Finally, we found that demography is unlikely to account for the previously observed positive correlation between nucleotide diversity and the population-recombination parameter in maize, leaving this observation difficult to interpret...

CNRS, UMR de Genetique Vegetale, INRA CNRS Univ Paris Sud AgroParistech, Ferme du Moulon, Gif sur Yvette, France
Genome Biol Evol 3:219-29. 2011..Interestingly, the relative abundance of TE families was conserved between species (r = 0.97), suggesting genome-wide control of TE content rather than family-specific effects...
- Flowering time in maize: linkage and epistasis at a major effect locusEléonore Durand
Universite Paris Sud, Gif sur Yvette, France
Genetics 190:1547-62. 2012..We therefore propose that both a cluster of tightly linked genes and epistasis contribute to the phenotypic variation for flowering time...

Department of Genetics, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI 53706, USA
J Hered 99:45-55. 2008..The fact that the same correlation is not confirmed for nucleotide diversity suggests that the strength of purifying selection at or near this class of microsatellites is higher than for nucleotide mutations...
