    John E Pool
    Department of Integrative Biology, University of California, Berkeley, USA
    Mol Biol Evol 25:1728-36. 2008
    ..Investigating the potential of this process to account for sharply reduced X-linked diversity in European Drosophila melanogaster, we find that this model yields predictions that are compatible with the empirical data...

    Genetics 181:711-9. 2009
    ..m. musculus, we find evidence for an increase in the rate of hybridization. Our findings could indicate an evolutionary trajectory toward fusion rather than speciation in these taxa...

    Charles H Langley
    Department of Evolution and Ecology, University of California, Davis, CA 95616, USA
    Genetics 192:533-98. 2012
    ..Comparison of the variation among these genomes to variation among genomes from D. simulans suggests that many targets of directional selection are shared between these species...

    John E Pool
    Department of Integrative Biology, University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, California 94720, USA
    Genome Res 20:291-300. 2010
    ..Here, we assess the challenges to analyzing whole-genome sequence polymorphism data, and we discuss the potential of these data to yield new insights concerning population history and the genomic prevalence of natural selection...

    Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York 14853, USA
    Genetics 172:1093-105. 2006
