    • Competition drives cooperation among closely related sperm of deer mice 

      Fisher, Heidi; Hoekstra, Hopi E. (Nature Publishing Group, 2010)
      Among the extraordinary adaptations driven by sperm competition is the cooperative behaviour of spermatozoa. By forming cooperative groups, sperm can increase their swimming velocity and thereby gain an advantage in intermale ...
    • Double Digest RADseq: An Inexpensive Method for De Novo SNP Discovery and Genotyping in Model and Non-Model Species 

      Peterson, Brant K.; Weber, Jesse N.; Kay, Emily Ho; Fisher, Heidi; Hoekstra, Hopi E. (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2012)
      The ability to efficiently and accurately determine genotypes is a keystone technology in modern genetics, crucial to studies ranging from clinical diagnostics, to genotype-phenotype association, to reconstruction of ...
    • The Dynamics of Sperm Cooperation in a Competitive Environment 

      Fisher, Heidi; Giomi, L.; Hoekstra, Hopi E.; Mahadevan, Lakshminarayanan (The Royal Society, 2014)
      Sperm cooperation has evolved in a variety of taxa and is often considered a response to sperm competition, yet the benefit of this form of collective movement remains unclear. Here we use fine-scale imaging and a minimal ...
    • The dynamics of sperm cooperation in a competitive environment

      Sperm cooperation has evolved in a variety of taxa and is often considered a response to sperm competition, yet the benefit of this form of collective movement remains unclear. Here, we use fine-scale imaging and a minimal ...
    • Five hundred microsatellite loci for Peromyscus 

      Weber, Jesse N.; Peters, Maureen B.; Tsyusko, Olga V.; Linnen, Catherine Ramsay; Hagen, Cris; Schable, Nancy A.; Tuberville, Tracey D.; McKee, Anna M.; Lance, Stacey L.; Jones, Kenneth L.; Fisher, Heidi; Dewey, Michael J.; Hoekstra, Hopi E.; Glenn, Travis C. (Springer Science + Business Media, 2010)
      Mice of the genus Peromyscus, including several endangered subspecies, occur throughout North America and have been important models for conservation research. We describe 526 primer pairs that amplify microsatellite DNA ...
