    • Convergence in pigmentation at multiple levels: mutations, genes and function 

      Manceau, M; Domingues, V. S.; Linnen, Catherine Ramsay; Rosenblum, E. B.; Hoekstra, Hopi E. (The Royal Society, 2010)
      Convergence—the independent evolution of the same trait by two or more taxa—has long been of interest to evolutionary biologists, but only recently has the molecular basis of phenotypic convergence been identified. Here, ...
    • Developmental mechanisms of stripe patterns in rodents 

      Mallarino, Ricardo; Henegar, Corneliu; Mirasierra, Mercedes; Manceau, Marie; Schradin, Carsten; Vallejo, Mario; Beronja, Slobodan; Barsh, Gregory S.; Hoekstra, Hopi E. (Springer Nature, 2016)
      Mammalian color patterns are among the most recognizable characters found in nature and can have a profound impact on fitness. However, little is known about the mechanisms underlying their formation and subsequent evolution. ...
    • The Developmental Role of Agouti in Color Pattern Evolution 

      Manceau, Marie; Domingues, Vera S.; Mallarino, Ricardo; Hoekstra, Hopi E. (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2011)
      Animal color patterns can affect fitness in the wild; however, little is known about the mechanisms that control their formation and subsequent evolution. We took advantage of two locally camouflaged populations of Peromyscus ...
    • Melanism in Peromyscus Is Caused by Independent Mutations in Agouti 

      Kingsley, Evan Prentice; Manceau, Marie C.; Wiley, Christopher D.; Hoekstra, Hopi E. (Public Library of Science, 2009)
      Identifying the molecular basis of phenotypes that have evolved independently can provide insight into the ways genetic and developmental constraints influence the maintenance of phenotypic diversity. Melanic (darkly ...
    • Turing patterns: how the fish got its spots 

      Metz, Hillery Claire; Manceau, Marie; Hoekstra, Hopi E. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2011)
