Posted on Posted in Lab Meetings
Levels of divergence in autosomes in sex chromosomes (Ellegren 2012).

We will read two data driven papers this week:

Ellegren, H., L. Smeds, R. Burri, P. I. Olason, N. Backström, T. Kawakami, A. Künstner, H. Mäkinen, K. Nadachowska-Brzyska, A. Qvarnström, S. Uebbing, and J. B. W. Wolf. 2012. The genomic landscape of species divergence in Ficedula flycatchers. Nature 491:756–760. [doi link]

Wiley, C., A. Qvarnström, G. Andersson, T. Borge, and G.-P. Saetre. 2009. Postzygotic isolation over multiple generations of hybrid descendents in a natural hybrid zone: how well do single-generation estimates reflect reproductive isolation? Evolution 63:1731–1739. [doi link]
