- Chimeric genes as a source of rapid evolution in Drosophila melanogasterRebekah L Rogers
Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University, USA
Mol Biol Evol 29:517-29. 2012..Hence, chimeric genes can serve as an exceptional source of genetic novelty that can have a profound influence on adaptive evolution in D. melanogaster...
- Adaptive impact of the chimeric gene Quetzalcoatl in Drosophila melanogasterRebekah L Rogers
Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 107:10943-8. 2010..Together, these results show that chimeric genes can produce structural and regulatory changes in a single mutational step and may be a major factor in adaptive evolution...
- Formation and longevity of chimeric and duplicate genes in Drosophila melanogasterRebekah L Rogers
Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA
Genetics 181:313-22. 2009..Our results paint a dynamic picture of both chimeras and duplicate genes within the genome and suggest that chimeric genes contribute substantially to genomic novelty...
