    • Evolutionary novelty in a butterfly wing pattern through enhancer shuffling 

      Wallbank, Richard W. R.; Baxter, Simon W.; Pardo-Diaz, Carolina; Hanly, Joseph J.; Martin, Simon H.; Mallet, James; Dasmahapatra, Kanchon K.; Salazar, Camilo; Joron, Mathieu; Nadeau, Nicola; McMillan, W. Owen; Jiggins, Chris D.
      An important goal in evolutionary biology is to understand the genetic changes underlying novel morphological structures. We investigated the origins of a complex wing pattern found among Amazonian Heliconius butterflies. ...

    • Genome-wide evidence for speciation with gene flow in Heliconius butterflies 

      Martin, Simon H.; Dasmahapatra, Kanchon K.; Nadeau, Nicola J.; Salazar, Camilo; Walters, James R.; Simpson, Fraser; Blaxter, Mark; Manica, Andrea; Mallet, James; Jiggins, Chris D.
      Most speciation events probably occur gradually, without complete and immediate reproductive isolation, but the full extent of gene flow between diverging species has rarely been characterized on a genome-wide scale. ...

    • Patterns of Z chromosome divergence among Heliconius species highlight the importance of historical demography 

      Van Belleghem, Steven M.; Baquero, Margarita; Papa, Riccardo; Salazar, Camilo; McMillan, W. Owen; Counterman, Brian A.; Jiggins, Chris D.; Martin, Simon H.
      Sex chromosomes are disproportionately involved in reproductive isolation and adaptation. In support of such a “large-X” effect, genome scans between recently diverged populations and species pairs often identify distinct ...
