Abstract

Outlier scans, in which the genome is scanned for signatures of selection, have become a prominent tool in studies of local adaptation, and more recently studies of genetic convergence in natural populations. However, such methods have the potential to be confounded by features of demog...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.

Cell Migration

Cell migration is involved in a variety of physiological and pathological processes such as embryonic development, cancer metastasis, blood vessel formation and remoulding, tissue regeneration, immune surveillance and inflammation. Here is the latest research.

Genome Dynamics and Adaptation

Genome-scale tools are revolutionizing studies of evolution by providing complete determination of the genetic basis of adaptation. Discover the latest research on Genome Dynamics and Adaptation here.
