Summary

  • Bdelloid rotifers are tiny aquatic invertebrates. They are capable of asexual reproduction, and a number of lines of evidence suggest that they are, in fact, ancient asexuals [1, 2] They appear to acquire large numbers of genes from their environment [3]. We are interested in tracking the fate of these genes over time to answer the following questions:
    • Can foreign genes successfully integrate into existing eukaryotic genomes?
    • Can foreign genes serve as important sources of evolutionary novelty in an asexual organism?
