- Genome-wide patterns of expression in Drosophila pure species and hybrid malesPawel Michalak
Department of Biological Sciences, Louisiana State University, USA
Mol Biol Evol 20:1070-6. 2003..Furthermore, genes that are expressed primarily or exclusively in males, including several involved in spermatogenesis, are disproportionately misexpressed in hybrids, suggesting a possible genetic cause for their sterility...
- Natural selection drives extremely rapid evolution in antiviral RNAi genesDarren J Obbard
Institute of Evolutionary Biology, University of Edinburgh, Kings Buildings, West Mains Road, Edinburgh EH9 3JT, United Kingdom
Curr Biol 16:580-5. 2006..This is a signature of host-pathogen arms races and implies that the ancient battle between RNA viruses and host antiviral RNAi genes is active and significant in shaping RNAi function...
