Root knot nematodes (RKN) can infect most of the world’s agricultural crop species and are among the most important of all plant pathogens. As yet however we have little understanding of their origins or the genomic basis of their extreme polyp... Read More

Journal Article
Machado, H. E., Jui, G., Joyce, D. A., Reilly, C. R. L., Lunt, D. H., & Renn, S. C. (2014). Gene duplication in an African cichlid adaptive radiation. BMC Genomics, 15(1), 161. https://doi.org/10.1186/1471-2164-15-161

Background Gene duplication is a source of evolutionary innovation and can contribute to the divergence of lineages; however, the relative importance of this process remains to be determined. The explosive divergence of the African cichlid adaptive r... Read More
