- Polymorphism in the neurofibromin gene, Nf1, is associated with antagonistic selection on wing size and development time in Drosophila melanogasterSiu F Lee
Department of Genetics and Bio21 Institute, The University of Melbourne, Parkville, Melbourne, Vic, Australia
Mol Ecol 22:2716-25. 2013..Our results point to the potential complexity involved in identifying selection on genetic variants exhibiting pleiotropic effects when studies are based on spatial patterns or association studies...
- High-throughput PCR assays to monitor Wolbachia infection in the dengue mosquito (Aedes aegypti) and Drosophila simulansSiu F Lee
Department of Genetics, Bio21 Institute, The University of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Appl Environ Microbiol 78:4740-3. 2012..The new assays are accurate, informative, and cost-efficient for large-scale Wolbachia screening...
- Genetic mapping of adaptive wing size variation in Drosophila simulansS F Lee
Centre for Environmental Stress and Adaptation Research CESAR, Genetics Department, Bio21 Institute, University of Melbourne, Parkville, Victoria, Australia
Heredity (Edinb) 107:22-9. 2011..Our results suggest that parallel evolution of wing size clines could be driven by non-identical genetic mechanisms but in both cases involve a major QTL as well as smaller effects of other genomic regions...
- Polymorphism in the couch potato gene clines in eastern Australia but is not associated with ovarian dormancy in Drosophila melanogasterSiu F Lee
Department of Genetics and Bio21 Institute, The University of Melbourne, Parkville, VIC 3010, Australia School of Biological Sciences, Monash University, VIC 3800 Australia
Mol Ecol 20:2973-84. 2011..In conclusion, ovarian dormancy does not show a simple latitudinal cline, and the lack of cpo-dormancy association suggests a different genetic basis to reproductive dormancy in North America and Australia...

Centre for Environmental Stress and Adaptation Research, Department of Genetics, Bio21 Institute, The University of Melbourne, Australia
Mol Biol Evol 28:2393-402. 2011..Our results provide strong support that Dca is a candidate for climatic adaptation in D. melanogaster...

- Effects of small Hsp genes on developmental stability and microenvironmental canalizationKazuo H Takahashi
Centre for Environmental Stress and Adaptation Research, Department of Genetics, Bio21 Institute, The University of Melbourne, Parkville, Melbourne 3010, Australia
BMC Evol Biol 10:284. 2010..These characteristics of HSPs imply that they might affect developmental buffering and canalization...
- Genomic evidence for role of inversion 3RP of Drosophila melanogaster in facilitating climate change adaptationRahul V Rane
School of Biosciences, Bio21 Institute, University of Melbourne, 30 Flemington Road, Parkville, Vic, 3010, Australia
Mol Ecol 24:2423-32. 2015..Our data suggest that climatic adaptation through inversions can be dynamic, reflecting changes in the relative abundance of different forms of an inversion and ongoing evolution of allelic content within an inversion...
