    K E Weber
    Department of Biological Sciences, University of Southern Maine, Portland 04103, USA
    Genetics 144:205-13. 1996
    ..These results favor the second model, and challenge the concept of rugged fitness surfaces underlying the first model...

    Genetics 153:773-86. 1999
    ..The other model posits 11 loci with additive effects whose sum equals the total phenotypic range and with large positive and negative interactions that nearly cancel each other...

    Department of Biological Sciences, University of Southern Maine, Portland, Maine 04104 9300, USA
    Genetics 159:1045-57. 2001
    ..Heterozygous chromosome segments show almost no dominance. Pleiotropic effects on leg shape are only minor. At first view, wing shape genes form a rather homogeneous class, but certain complexities remain unresolved...

    Kenneth Weber
    Department of Biological Sciences, University of Southern Maine, Portland, 04104 9300, USA
    Genetics 169:1461-75. 2005
    ..All 11 insertions were within or near protein-coding transcription units, none of which were previously known to affect wing shape. Many sites in the genome can affect wing shape...

    Genetics 178:1093-108. 2008
    ..Our results also show that with well-replicated selection lines, of large effective size, the numbers of candidate genes in microarray-based searches can be reduced to realistic levels...
