    Smurfit Institute of Genetics, Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland
    PLoS Genet 5:e1000485. 2009
    ..Many of the gained genes in S. cerevisiae have functions associated with ethanol production, growth in hypoxic environments, or the uptake of alternative nutrient sources...

    Jonathan L Gordon
    Smurfit Institute of Genetics, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin 2, Ireland
    Yeast 25:449-56. 2008
    ..Instead, we conclude that ATCC 42981 is a Z. rouxii-Z. pseudorouxii interspecies hybrid that was formed so recently that its genome has not had time to decay...

    Jonathan L Gordon
    Smurfit Institute of Genetics, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin 2, Ireland
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 108:20024-9. 2011
    ..We suggest that, despite its mutational cost, switching confers an evolutionary benefit by providing a way for an isolated germinating spore to reform spores if the environment is too poor...

    Devin R Scannell
    Smurfit Institute of Genetics, University of Dublin, Trinity College, Dublin 2, Ireland
    Nature 440:341-5. 2006
    ..We propose a simple, unified model in which a single mechanism--passive gene loss-enabled whole--genome duplication and led to the rapid emergence of new yeast species...
