    Michael D Shapiro
    Department of Biology, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT 84112, USA
    Curr Biol 19:1140-5. 2009
    ..Comparative genetics in sticklebacks provides an exciting opportunity to study the mechanisms controlling similar phenotypic changes in different animal groups...
  2. pmc Genomic diversity and evolution of the head crest in the rock pigeon
    Michael D Shapiro
    Department of Biology, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT 84112, USA
    Science 339:1063-7. 2013
    ..We also found evidence that this trait evolved just once and spread throughout the species, and that the crest originates early in development by the localized molecular reversal of feather bud polarity...
  3. pmc Divergence, convergence, and the ancestry of feral populations in the domestic rock pigeon
    Sydney A Stringham
    Department of Biology, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT 84112, USA
    Curr Biol 22:302-8. 2012
    ..Our findings also illuminate the geographic origins of breed groups in India and the Middle East and suggest that racing breeds have made substantial contributions to feral pigeon populations...

    Michael W Guernsey
    Department of Biology, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 8:e74475. 2013
    ..Comparative genetic and cellular studies provide important insights about the range of mechanisms underlying diversity among vertebrates, including different phenotypic associations with similar mutations in different species. ..

    ..In particular, we inferred that loss of the pelvic (hind fin) skeleton probably evolved independently in populations descended from each of the three putative North American refugia...
