The hourglass and the early conservation models--co-existing patterns of developmental constraints in vertebrates

PLoS Genetics

May 3, 2013

Barbara PiaseckaMarc Robinson-Rechavi

Abstract

Developmental constraints have been postulated to limit the space of feasible phenotypes and thus shape animal evolution. These constraints have been suggested to be the strongest during either early or mid-embryogenesis, which corresponds to the early conservation model or the hourglas...read more

Evolution of Gene Regulation

The evolution from single-celled to multicellular organisms required precise control of genes and gave cells the ability to be programmed for specific functions. Discover the latest research on Evolution of Gene Regulation here.

Deep Homology

Deep homology investigates the genetic mechanisms that are homologous and deeply conserved across a wide range of species in evolutionary developmental biology. Discover the latest research on deep homology here.

Whole Genome and Gene Duplications in Evolution

Gene and whole-genome duplications have occurred repeatedly and broadly throughout the evolutionary history of eukaryotes. Discover the latest research on Whole Genome and Gene Duplications in Evolution here.

Hox Genes and Evolution

Hox genes encode evolutionarily conserved transcription factors with key functions in development and evolution. Discover the latest research on Hox Genes and Evolution here.

Gene Regulation, Differentiation & Reprogramming (Keystone)

This feed focuses on alterations of gene regulation during cell differentation and reprogramming processes. Here is the latest research on gene regulation in differentiation and reprogramming processes.

Gastrulation

Gastrulation is a phase early in the embryonic development of most animals, during which the single-layered blastula is reorganized into a multilayered structure known as the gastrula. Before gastrulation, the embryo is a continuous epithelial sheet of cells; by the end of gastrulation, the embryo has begun differentiation to establish distinct cell lineages, set up the basic axes of the body, and internalized one or more cell types including the prospective gut

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.

Embryogenesis

Embryogenesis is the process by which the embryo forms and develops. It starts with the fertilization of the egg cell (ovum) by a sperm cell, (spermatozoon). Once fertilized, the ovum is referred to as a zygote, a single diploid cell. The zygote undergoes mitotic divisions with no significant growth (a process known as cleavage) and cellular differentiation, leading to development of a multicellular embryo

Hox Gene Family

The homeobox genes (Hox gene family) encode for homeodomain-containing transcription factors, which are important in the regulation of embryonic development and cell differentiation. They have a conserved DNA binding domain that are found in the family of hox genes. Discover the latest research on hox gene family here.

Evolution of Gene Regulation (Keystone)

The evolution from single-celled to multicellular organisms required precise control of genes and gave cells the ability to be programmed for specific functions. Discover the latest research on the evolution of gene regulation and gene regulation in Drosophila in this feed.

Open Access Genomics Journals

Discover the latest genomics research in this collection of the top open access genomics journals.

Chromosomal Duplication

Chromosomal duplication is a result of extra genetic material within the area of the chromosome. The duplication may have no effect or may be expressed in the phenotype of that individual. Some duplications are thought to be of evolutionary selection. Discover the latest research on chromosomal duplication here.

Parasite evolution

Parasite evolution involves the heritable genetic changes that a parasite accumulates during its life time. Discover the latest research on parasite evolution here.
