Linking genomes to ecology: Molecular evolution of the immune-related genome of Daphnia pulex

Project Details

Key findings

This project identified immune system genes in the recently sequenced genome of Daphnia pulex. We also probed for signatures of natural selection on these genes, showing that they evolve faster than other parts of the genome
