- A phylogenetic test of the Red Queen Hypothesis: Outcrossing and parasitism in the Nematode phylumAmanda Kyle Gibson
Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana, 47405
Evolution 69:530-40. 2015..The findings of this study are consistent with the Red Queen Hypothesis. Moreover, they suggest that the maintenance of genetic variation is an important factor in the persistence of parasitic lineages. ..
- Why so many unknown genes? Partitioning orphans from a representative transcriptome of the lone star tick Amblyomma americanumAmanda K Gibson
Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN 47405, USA
BMC Genomics 14:135. 2013..We apply a general framework for quantifying the origin and true representation of unannotated sequences in a dataset and for evaluating the biological significance of orphan genes...
- Sibling competition arena: selfing and a competition arena can combine to constitute a barrier to gene flow in sympatryA K Gibson
Laboratoire Ecologie, Systematique et Evolution, Universite Paris Sud, 91405 Orsay, France
Evolution 66:1917-30. 2012..Our results thus suggest that selfing and a sibling competition arena can combine to constitute a barrier to gene flow and diminish selection for additional barriers to gene flow in sympatry...
