• Comparison of anadromous and landlocked Atlantic salmon genomes reveals signatures of parallel and relaxed selection across the Northern Hemisphere 

      Kjærner-Semb, Erik Nordtorp; Edvardsen, Rolf Brudvik; Ayllon, Fernando; Vogelsang, Petra; Furmanek, Tomasz; Rubin, Carl-Johan; Veselov, Alexey E.; Nilsen, Tom Ole; McCormick, Stephen D.; Primmer, Craig R.; Wargelius, Anna (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Most Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) populations follow an anadromous life cycle, spending early life in freshwater, migrating to the sea for feeding, and returning to rivers to spawn. At the end of the last ice age ~10,000 ...
    • Moderate nucleotide diversity in the Atlantic herring is associated with a low mutation rate 

      Feng, Chungang; Pettersson, Mats; Lamichhaney, Sangeet; Rubin, Carl-Johan; Rafati, Nima; Casini, Michele; Folkvord, Arild; Andersson, Leif (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
    • Reconstruction of the birth of a male sex chromosome present in Atlantic herring 

      Rafati, Nima; Chen, Junfeng; Herpin, Amaury; Pettersson, Mats; Han, Fan; Feng, Chungang; Wallerman, Ola; Rubin, Carl-Johan; Péron, Sandrine; Cocco, Arianna; Larsson, Mårten; Trötschel, Christian; Poetsch, Ansgar; Korsching, Kai; Bönigk, Wolfgang; Körschen, Heinz G.; Berg, Florian; Folkvord, Arild; Benjamin Kaupp, Kaupp; Schartl, Manfred; Andersson, Leif (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The mechanisms underlying sex determination are astonishingly plastic. Particularly the triggers for the molecular machinery, which recalls either the male or female developmental program, are highly variable and have ...
    • The genetic basis for ecological adaptation of the Atlantic herring revealed by genome sequencing 

      Barrio, Alvaro Martinez; Lamichhaney, Sangeet; Fan, Guangyi; Rafati, Nima; Pettersson, Mats; Zhang, He; Dainat, Jacques; Ekman, Diana; Höppner, Marc P.; Jern, Patric; Martin, Marcel; Nystedt, Björn; Liu, Xin; Chen, Wenbin; Liang, Xinming; Shi, Chengcheng; Fu, Yuanyuan; Ma, Kailong; Zhan, Xiao; Feng, Chungang; Gustafson, Ulla; Rubin, Carl-Johan; Almén, Markus Sällman; Blass, Martina; Casini, Michele; Folkvord, Arild; Laikre, Linda; Ryman, Nils; Lee, Simon Ming-Yuen; Xu, Xun; Andersson, Leif (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016-05-03)
      Ecological adaptation is of major relevance to speciation and sustainable population management, but the underlying genetic factors are typically hard to study in natural populations due to genetic differentiation caused ...
