    • Disentangling structural genomic and behavioral barriers in a sea of connectivity 

      Barth, Julia Maria Isis; Villegas-Ríos, David; Freitas, Carla; Moland, Even; Star, Bastiaan; André, Carl; Knutsen, Halvor; Bradbury, Ian; Dierking, Jan; Petereit, Christoph; Righton, David; Metcalfe, Julian; Jakobsen, Kjetill Sigurd; Olsen, Esben Moland; Jentoft, Sissel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Genetic divergence among populations arises through natural selection or drift and is counteracted by connectivity and gene flow. In sympatric populations, isolating mechanisms are thus needed to limit the homogenizing ...
    • Evolution of the immune system influences speciation rates in teleost fishes 

      Malmstrøm, Martin; Matschiner, Michael; Tørresen, Ole Kristian; Star, Bastiaan; Snipen, Lars-Gustav; Hansen, Thomas F; Baalsrud, Helle Tessand; Nederbragt, Alexander Johan; Hanel, Reinhold; Salzburger, Walter; Stenseth, Nils Christian; Jakobsen, Kjetill Sigurd; Jentoft, Sissel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Teleost fishes constitute the most species-rich vertebrate clade and exhibit extensive genetic and phenotypic variation, including diverse immune defense strategies. The genomic basis of a particularly aberrant strategy ...
