Hohenlohe Uses Stickleback Fish to Investigate Evolution of Similar Genetic Patterns
December 03, 2020
Evolutionary biologist Paul Hohenlohe and international colleagues estimated genomic parallelism — the evolution of similar genetic patterns by separate populations — in four groups of three-spined stickleback fish in Alaska, British Columbia, Iceland and Scotland. The study used genomic sequencing to reveal how genetic variation and environmental differences drive adaptation of this species around the globe.
