  1. pmc Evolutionarily stable infection by a male-killing endosymbiont in Drosophila innubila: molecular evidence from the host and parasite genomes
    Kelly A Dyer
    Department of Biology, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York 14627, USA
    Genetics 168:1443-55. 2004
    ..innubila-Wolbachia association is likely at a stable equilibrium that is maintained by imperfect maternal transmission of the bacteria rather than partial resistance in the host species...
  2. ncbi Evolutionary dynamics of a spatially structured host-parasite association: Drosophila innubila and male-killing Wolbachia
    Kelly A Dyer
    Department of Biology, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York 14627, USA
    Evolution 59:1518-28. 2005
    ..Overall, our data suggest that the association between D. innubila and male-killing Wolbachia is ecologically dynamic within local populations, but evolutionarily coherent across the species as a whole...
  3. pmc Asymmetrical reinforcement and Wolbachia infection in Drosophila
    John Jaenike
    Department of Biology, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York, USA
    PLoS Biol 4:e325. 2006
    ..Given the widespread occurrence of Wolbachia among insects, it thus appears that there are multiple ways by which these endosymbionts may directly and indirectly contribute to reproductive isolation and speciation...
  4. ncbi Expression and modulation of embryonic male-killing in Drosophila innubila: opportunities for multilevel selection
    Kelly A Dyer
    Department of Biology, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York 14627, USA
    Evolution 59:838-48. 2005
    ..innubila at the host population level suggest that selection among cytoplasmic lineages is likely to overwhelm the results of selection within lineages...
  5. ncbi Rapid divergence of microsatellite abundance among species of Drosophila
    Charles L Ross
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Arizona, USA
    Mol Biol Evol 20:1143-57. 2003
    ..In addition, the nature of microsatellite evolution is dependent on temporal and taxonomic scales, and some variation is conserved across broad taxonomic levels despite relatively high rates of mutation for these loci...
  6. pmc Decreased diversity but increased substitution rate in host mtDNA as a consequence of Wolbachia endosymbiont infection
    D DeWayne Shoemaker
    Department of Entomology, University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wisconsin 53706, USA
    Genetics 168:2049-58. 2004
    ..These findings show that maternally transmitted endosymbionts can severely depress levels of mtDNA diversity within an infected host species, while accelerating the rate of divergence among mtDNA lineages in different species...
  7. pmc Modeling the site-specific variation of selection patterns along lineages
    Stephane Guindon
    Bioinformatics Institute, Allan Wilson Centre for Molecular Ecology and Evolution, University of Auckland, Private Bag 92019, Auckland, New Zealand
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 101:12957-62. 2004
    ..We also provide strong evidence that the strength and the frequency of occurrence of selection might not be estimated accurately when the site-specific variation of selection regimes is ignored...
  8. ncbi Bayesian estimation of positively selected sites
    John P Huelsenbeck
    Section of Ecology, Behavior and Evolution, Division of Biological Sciences, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093 0116, USA
    J Mol Evol 58:661-72. 2004
    ..Compared to a previous analysis of this data set, the hierarchical model found most of the same sites to be in the positive selection class, but with a few striking exceptions...
  9. pmc Chromosome-wide linkage disequilibrium as a consequence of meiotic drive
    Kelly A Dyer
    Institute of Evolutionary Biology, University of Edinburgh, Ashworth Laboratories, Kings Buildings, Edinburgh EH9 3JT, United Kingdom
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:1587-92. 2007
    ..Thus, the X(D) in D. recens appears to be in chromosome-wide linkage disequilibrium and in the early stages of mutational degradation...
