Comparative analysis of teleost genome sequences reveals an ancient intron size expansion in the zebrafish lineage (2011)
Journal Article
Moss, S. P., Joyce, D. A., Humphries, S., Tindall, K. J., & Lunt, D. H. (2011). Comparative analysis of teleost genome sequences reveals an ancient intron size expansion in the zebrafish lineage. Genome Biology and Evolution, 3(1), 1187-1196. doi:10.1093/gbe/evr090

We have developed a bioinformatics pipeline for the comparative evolutionary analysis of Ensembl genomes and have used it to analyze the introns of the five available teleost fish genomes. We show our pipeline to be a powerful tool for revealing vari... Read More

Latitudinal variations in the physiology of marine gammarid amphipods (2011)
Journal Article
Whiteley, N. M., Rastrick, S. P. S., Lunt, D. H., & Rock, J. (2011). Latitudinal variations in the physiology of marine gammarid amphipods. Journal of experimental marine biology and ecology, 400(1-2), 70-77. doi:10.1016/j.jembe.2011.02.027

In order to examine the physiological capabilities of marine invertebrates in their natural environment, a series of physiological measurements were conducted on congeneric amphipod species (Genus Gammarus) distributed along a natural thermal gradien... Read More

Repeated colonization and hybridization in Lake Malawi cichlids (2011)
Journal Article
Joyce, D., Lunt, D. H., Genner, M. J., Turner, G. F., Bills, R., & Seehausen, O. (2011). Repeated colonization and hybridization in Lake Malawi cichlids. Current biology : CB, 21(3), (R108-R109). doi:10.1016/j.cub.2010.11.029. ISSN 0960-9822

Through adaptive radiation, ancestral species rapidly diversify into multiple species with different ecological adaptations. The haplochromine cichlid fishes of the East African Great Lakes are considered classic examples of adaptive radiation, but o... Read More
