Evolutionary genetics discussion group. UC Davis
A reading group for the UC Davis community interested in evolutionary genetics.
Meetings 12:00 on Fridays. Chucklesworth suite.
Post suggestions for discussion papers or topics here.
Dave Plachetzki will be leading this paper on a RAD tag study of different sickleback populations (FW and SW). RAD tag technology might be of interest to many in the group and this paper is a good introduction.
This week we will be reading papers about the evolution of gene expression over development. These are two short and provocative papers in Nature (Kalinka et al, and Domazet-Lošo, T. & Tautz). I'm also posting the news & views to supplement the papers. (Discussion leader - Yaniv Brandvain)
We are posting comments on this weeks readings here. The idea is to get the discussion started before we meet, and keep it going after.
