Abstract

Quantitative genetics is at or is fast approaching its centennial. In this perspective I consider five current issues pertinent to the application of quantitative genetics to evolutionary theory. First, I discuss the utility of a quantitative genetic perspective in describing genetic va...read more

Microbial ecology, genetics and evolution

Microbes are microscopic organisms which may exist in a unicellular or colony form. Here is the latest research on their genetic makeup, their relationship with one another and the environment, and their evolution.

Genetic Speciation

Speciation depends on the genetic evolution of reproductive barriers that allow populations to diverge from each other. Discover the latest research on Genetic Speciation here.

Gene Regulatory Networks (Keystone)

Gene regulatory networks are comprised of molecular regulators that interact with each other and other factors in a cell to regulate and modulate gene expression. Here is the latest research.

Expression Quantitative Trait Loci Analysis

Expression Quantitative Trait Loci (eQTL) analysis is the identification of specific or groups of genetic variants that affect gene expression levels within the cell. Discover the latest research on Expression Quantitative Trait Loci Analysis here.
