    • Evolutionary principles of modular gene regulation in yeasts 

      Thompson, Dawn A; Roy, Sushmita; Chan, Michelle; Styczynsky, Mark P; Pfiffner, Jenna; French, Courtney; Socha, Amanda; Thielke, Anne; Napolitano, Sara; Muller, Paul; Kellis, Manolis; Konieczka, Jay H; Wapinski, Ilan; Regev, Aviv (eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd, 2013)
      Divergence in gene regulation can play a major role in evolution. Here, we used a phylogenetic framework to measure mRNA profiles in 15 yeast species from the phylum Ascomycota and reconstruct the evolution of their modular ...
    • Expression Divergence Measured by Transcriptome Sequencing of Four Yeast Species 

      Busby, Michele A; Gray, Jesse M.; Costa, Allen M; Stewart, Chip; Stromberg, Michael P; Barnett, Derek; Chuang, Jeffrey H; Springer, Michael; Marth, Gabor T (BioMed Central, 2011)
      Background: The evolution of gene expression is a challenging problem in evolutionary biology, for which accurate, well-calibrated measurements and methods are crucial. Results: We quantified gene expression with ...
    • Improved Use of a Public Good Selects for the Evolution of Undifferentiated Multicellularity 

      Koschwanez, John H; Foster, Kevin R; Murray, Andrew W. (eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd, 2013)
      We do not know how or why multicellularity evolved. We used the budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, to ask whether nutrients that must be digested extracellularly select for the evolution of undifferentiated ...
