Genetic architecture and evolution of the S locus supergene in Primula vulgaris (2016)
Journal Article
Li, J., Cocker, J. M., Wright, J., Webster, M. A., McMullan, M., Dyer, S., …Gilmartin, P. M. (2016). Genetic architecture and evolution of the S locus supergene in Primula vulgaris. Nature Plants, 2(12), https://doi.org/10.1038/nplants.2016.188

Darwin's studies on heterostyly in Primula described two floral morphs, pin and thrum, with reciprocal anther and stigma heights that promote insect-mediated cross-pollination. This key innovation evolved independently in several angiosperm families.... Read More about Genetic architecture and evolution of the S locus supergene in Primula vulgaris.

Solutions for PCR, cloning and sequencing errors in population genetic analysis (2009)
Journal Article
Cummings, S. M., McMullan, M., Joyce, D. A., & van Oosterhout, C. (2010). Solutions for PCR, cloning and sequencing errors in population genetic analysis. Conservation genetics, 11(3), (1095-1097). doi:10.1007/s10592-009-9864-6. ISSN 1566-0621

PCR and sequencing artefacts can seriously bias population genetic analyses, particularly of populations with low genetic variation such as endangered vertebrate populations. Here, we estimate the error rates, discuss their population genetics implic... Read More about Solutions for PCR, cloning and sequencing errors in population genetic analysis.
