Genome-wide analysis of selection in insects, mammals and fungi

Abstract:

Characterising and understanding factors that affect the rate of molecular evolution in proteins has played a major part in the development of evolutionary theory. The early analyses of amino acid substitutions stimulated the development of the neutral theory of molecular evolution, which later evolved into the nearly neutral theory. More recent work has lead to a better understanding of the role selection plays at the molecular level, but there is still limited understanding of how higher...
