    Jennifer A Brisson
    Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08540, USA
    Evol Dev 9:338-46. 2007
    ..These data also provide a baseline for future studies of the molecular and physiological basis of life-history trade-offs...
  2. doi request reprint Rarity of males in pea aphids results in mutational decay
    Jennifer A Brisson
    Section of Ecology and Evolution, University of California, Davis, CA 95616, USA
    Science 319:58. 2008
    ..We conclude that the ability of females to reproduce asexually without males reduces selection constraints on male-based genes, resulting in their mutational decay...

    Jennifer A Brisson
    Section of Ecology and Evolution, University of California at Davis, Davis, CA, USA
    BMC Genet 10:22. 2009
    ..Because introductions can cause population bottlenecks, we hypothesized that U.S. populations harbor lower levels of nucleotide diversity and higher levels of LD than native populations...

    Jennifer A Brisson
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544, USA
    Bioessays 28:747-55. 2006
    ..Combined with new genomic approaches, the pea aphid is poised to become an important model system for understanding the molecular and developmental basis of many ecologically and evolutionarily relevant problems...
