Genomic signatures of near-extinction and rebirth of the crested ibis and other endangered bird species.
(Genome Biol, 2014)
BACKGROUND: Nearly one-quarter of all avian species is either threatened or nearly threatened. Of these, 73 species are currently being rescued from going extinct in wildlife sanctuaries. One of the previously most ...
Comparative genomics reveals insights into avian genome evolution and adaptation.
Birds are the most species-rich class of tetrapod vertebrates and have wide relevance across many research fields. We explored bird macroevolution using full genomes from 48 avian species representing all major extant clades. ...
The genomic consequences of adaptive divergence and reproductive isolation between species of manakins.
(Mol Ecol, 2013-06)
The processes of adaptation and speciation are expected to shape genomic variation within and between diverging species. Here we analyze genomic heterogeneity of genetic differentiation and introgression in a hybrid zone ...
