    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
