- Rice genomes: a grainy view of future evolutionary researchKevin Livingstone
Department of Biology, 142 Jordan Hall, Indiana University, Bloomington 47405, USA
Curr Biol 12:R470-1. 2002..The draft genome sequences from two subspecies of rice are powerful new tools for gene discovery in the grasses. Genome-wide comparisons of gene content and order will also shed new light on evolutionary processes...
- A stochastic model for the development of Bateson-Dobzhansky-Muller incompatibilities that incorporates protein interaction networksKevin Livingstone
Department of Biology, Trinity University, 1 Trinity Place, San Antonio, TX 78212, USA
Math Biosci 238:49-53. 2012..These results allow us to define the rate at which deleterious interactions are expected to form, and hence the speciation rate, for any protein-protein interaction network...
- Patterns of variation in the evolution of carotenoid biosynthetic pathway enzymes of higher plantsKevin Livingstone
Department of Biology, Trinity University, San Antonio, TX 78212, USA
J Hered 100:754-61. 2009..Taken together, these results show that the enzymes of the carotenoid biosynthetic pathway are under strong selective constraint but that the most downstream enzyme is under the least constraint...
- Using variable rate models to identify genes under selection in sequence pairs: their validity and limitations for EST sequencesSheri A Church
Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN 47405, USA
J Mol Evol 64:171-80. 2007..We discuss the validity and limitations of using variable rate models for comparisons of sequence pairs, as well as the limitations of using ESTs for identification of positively selected genes...
