- Signatures of selection in loci governing major colour patterns in Heliconius butterflies and related speciesGrace C Wu
Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, UK
BMC Evol Biol 10:368. 2010..Ratios of nonsynonymous to synonymous nucleotide changes (ω) were used to test for selection, as a means of identifying candidate genes within each locus that control wing pattern...
- Chromosomal rearrangements maintain a polymorphic supergene controlling butterfly mimicryMathieu Joron
CNRS UMR 7205, Museum national d histoire naturelle, CP50, 45 rue Buffon, 75005 Paris, France
Nature 477:203-6. 2011..These findings highlight how genomic rearrangements can have a central role in the coexistence of adaptive phenotypes involving several genes acting in concert, by locally limiting recombination and gene flow...
