      Dasmahapatra, Kanchon K; Walters, James R.; Briscoe, Adriana D.; Davey, John W.; Whibley, Annabel; Nadeau, Nicola J.; Zimin, Aleksey V.; Hughes, Daniel S. T.; Ferguson, Laura C.; Martin, Simon H.; Salazar, Camilo; Lewis, James J.; Adler, Sebastian; Ahn, Seung-Joon; Baker, Dean A.; Baxter, Simon W.; Chamberlain, Nicola; Chauhan, Ritika; Counterman, Brian A.; Dalmay, Tamas; Gilbert, Lawrence E.; Gordon, Karl; Heckel, David G.; Hines, Heather M.; Hoff, Katharina J.; Holland, Peter W.H.; Jacquin-Joly, Emmanuelle; Jiggins, Francis M.; Jones, Robert T.; Kapan, Durrell D.; Kersey, Paul; Lamas, Gerardo; Lawson, Daniel; Mapleson, Daniel; Maroja, Luana S.; Martin, Arnaud; Moxon, Simon; Palmer, William J.; Papa, Riccardo; Papanicolaou, Alexie; Pauchet, Yannick; Ray, David A.; Rosser, Neil; Salzberg, Steven L.; Supple, Megan A.; Surridge, Alison; Tenger-Trolander, Ayse; Vogel, Heiko; Wilkinson, Paul A.; Wilson, Derek; Yorke, James A.; Yuan, Furong; Balmuth, Alexi L.; Eland, Cathlene; Gharbi, Karim; Thomson, Marian; Gibbs, Richard A.; Han, Yi; Jayaseelan, Joy C.; Kovar, Christie; Mathew, Tittu; Muzny, Donna M.; Ongeri, Fiona; Pu, Ling-Ling; Qu, Jiaxin; Thornton, Rebecca L.; Worley, Kim C.; Wu, Yuan-Qing; Linares, Mauricio; Blaxter, Mark L.; Constant, Richard H. ffrench; Joron, Mathieu; Kronforst, Marcus; Mullen, Sean P.; Reed, Robert D.; Scherer, Steven E.; Richards, Stephen; Mallet, Jim; McMillan, W. Owen; Jiggins, Chris D. (2012)
      The evolutionary importance of hybridization and introgression has long been debated1. We used genomic tools to investigate introgression in Heliconius, a rapidly radiating genus of neotropical butterflies widely used in ...
    • Gene flow and the genealogical history of Heliconius heurippa 

      Salazar, Camilo; Jiggins, Chris D; Taylor, Jesse E; Kronforst, Marcus; Linares, Mauricio (BioMed Central, 2008)
      Background: The neotropical butterfly Heliconius heurippa has a hybrid colour pattern, which also contributes to reproductive isolation, making it a likely example of hybrid speciation. Here we used phylogenetic and ...
    • Gene flow persists millions of years after speciation in Heliconius butterflies 

      Kronforst, Marcus (BioMed Central, 2008)
      Background: Hybridization, or the interbreeding of two species, is now recognized as an important process in the evolution of many organisms. However, the extent to which hybridization results in the transfer of genetic ...
    • Genomic Hotspots for Adaptation: The Population Genetics of Müllerian Mimicry in the Heliconius melpomene Clade 

      Baxter, Simon W.; Nadeau, Nicola J.; Maroja, Luana S.; Wilkinson, Paul; Counterman, Brian A.; Dawson, Anna; Beltran, Margarita; Perez-Espona, Silvia; Ferguson, Laura; Davidson, Claire; Glithero, Rebecca; Mallet, James; Joron, Mathieu; ffrench-Constant, Richard H.; Jiggins, Chris D.; Chamberlain, Nicola L; Clark, Richard; McMillan, W. Owen; Kronforst, Marcus (Public Library of Science, 2010)
      Wing patterning in Heliconius butterflies is a longstanding example of both Müllerian mimicry and phenotypic radiation under strong natural selection. The loci controlling such patterns are “hotspots” for adaptive evolution ...
    • Phylogeography and Sexual Macrocyst Formation in the Social Amoeba \(Dictyostelium Giganteum\) 

      Mehdiabadi, Natasha J; Kronforst, Marcus; Queller, David C; Strassmann, Joan E (BioMed Central, 2010)
      Background: Microorganisms are ubiquitous, yet we are only beginning to understand their diversity and population structure. Social amoebae (Dictyostelia) are a diverse group of unicellular eukaryotic microbes that display ...
    • Unraveling the thread of nature’s tapestry: the genetics of diversity and convergence in animal pigmentation 

      Kronforst, Marcus; Barsh, Gregory S.; Kopp, Artyom; Mallet, James; Monteiro, Antónia; Mullen, Sean P.; Protas, Meredith; Rosenblum, Erica B.; Schneider, Christopher; Hoekstra, Hopi E. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2012)
      Animals display incredibly diverse color patterns yet little is known about the underlying genetic basis of these phenotypes. However, emerging results are reshaping our view of how the process of phenotypic evolution ...
