Laboratory of Genetics, Wageningen University, P, O Box 309, 6700, AH Wageningen, The Netherlands
Malar J 13:479. 2014..However, few studies have analysed the effects of natural variation within fungal isolates on mosquito survival, and the implications and possible exploitation for malaria control...

Department of Biology, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
PLoS ONE 7:e50305. 2012..These results are discussed in the context of the evolution of complex phenotypes through the input of adaptive mutations...
- Antagonistic interactions peak at intermediate genetic distance in clinical and laboratory strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosaSijmen E Schoustra
Biology Department, University of Ottawa, 30 Marie Curie, Ottawa, ON K1N 6N5, Canada
BMC Microbiol 12:40. 2012..The strength of antagonism is therefore expected to peak at intermediate genetic distance...
- Correlation of mycelial growth rate with other phenotypic characters in evolved genotypes of Aspergillus nidulansSijmen Schoustra
Department of Biology, University of Ottawa, Canada Laboratory of Genetics, Wageningen University, The Netherlands
Fungal Biol 116:630-6. 2012..Our results give insight into changes in fungal phenotype as a result of adaptation and suggest that mycelial growth rate is the only available target of selection...

Department of Biology, Center for Applied Research in Environmental Genomics, University of Ottawa, 30 Marie Curie, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Curr Biol 20:1350-5. 2010..FAS in A. nidulans is unlikely to have evolved as a strategy to resist or avoid stress because asexual spores are more dispersive and equally resistant [12, 13]...
