    • Behavior genetics and postgenomics. 

      Charney, Evan (Behav Brain Sci, 2012-10)
      The science of genetics is undergoing a paradigm shift. Recent discoveries, including the activity of retrotransposons, the extent of copy number variations, somatic and chromosomal mosaicism, and the nature of the epigenome ...
    • Endangered species hold clues to human evolution. 

      Lowe, Craig B; Bejerano, Gill; Salama, Sofie R; Haussler, David (The Journal of heredity, 2010-07)
      We report that 18 conserved, and by extension functional, elements in the human genome are the result of retroposon insertions that are evolving under purifying selection in mammals. We show evidence that 1 of the 18 elements ...
    • Retrotransposons Are the Major Contributors to the Expansion of the Drosophila ananassae Muller F Element. 

      Leung, Wilson; Shaffer, Christopher D; Chen, Elizabeth J; Quisenberry, Thomas J; Ko, Kevin; Braverman, John M; Giarla, Thomas C; ... (276 authors) (G3 (Bethesda, Md.), 2017-08-07)
      The discordance between genome size and the complexity of eukaryotes can partly be attributed to differences in repeat density. The Muller F element (∼5.2 Mb) is the smallest chromosome in Drosophila melanogaster, but it ...
    • The genome of a songbird. 

      Warren, Wesley C; Clayton, David F; Ellegren, Hans; Arnold, Arthur P; Hillier, Ladeana W; Künstner, Axel; Searle, Steve; ... (82 authors) (Nature, 2010-04-01)
      The zebra finch is an important model organism in several fields with unique relevance to human neuroscience. Like other songbirds, the zebra finch communicates through learned vocalizations, an ability otherwise documented ...
