    • Adaptation in the forest deer mouse: evolution, genetics, and development 

      Kingsley, Evan Prentice (2015-05-16)
      Variation in the shape, size, and number of segments along the vertebral column underlies a vast amount of vertebrate diversity. Although the molecular pathways controlling vertebrate segmentation during normal development ...
    • 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 ...
    • On the Origin and Spread of an Adaptive Allele in Deer Mice 

      Linnen, Catherine Ramsay; Kingsley, Evan Prentice; Jensen, J. D.; Hoekstra, Hopi E. (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2009)
      Adaptation is a central focus of biology, although it can be difficult to identify both the strength and agent of selection and the underlying molecular mechanisms causing change. We studied cryptically colored deer mice ...
