Suggested paper list for Spring 2014

A new semester of our tutorial Genomes, Ecology, Evolution, etc. is starting, and this time we’ll ask the students to chose 8 papers among the following 12. Because there are so many interesting recent papers that we couldn’t chose just 8, and especially because we want to hear what the students prefer.

Here is the list of suggested papers, in no special order:

  1. Freedman et al 2014 Genome Sequencing Highlights the Dynamic Early History of Dogs
  2. Amborella Genome Project 2013 The Amborella Genome and the Evolution of Flowering Plants
  3. Corbett-Detig et al. 2013 Genetic incompatibilities are widespread within species
  4. Moreno-Estrada et al. 2013 Reconstructing the Population Genetic History of the Caribbean
  5. Parker et al. 2013 Genome-wide signatures of convergent evolution in echolocating mammals
  6. Prado-Martinez et al. 2013 Great ape genetic diversity and population history
  7. Orlando et al. 2013 Recalibrating Equus evolution using the genome sequence of an early Middle Pleistocene horse
  8. Long et al. 2013 Massive genomic variation and strong selection in Arabidopsis thaliana lines from Sweden
  9. McTavish et al. 2013 New World cattle show ancestry from multiple independent domestication events
  10. Linnen et al. 2013 Adaptive Evolution of Multiple Traits Through Multiple Mutations at a Single Gene
  11. Schmizt et al. 2013 Patterns of population epigenomic diversity
  12. Lappalainen et al. 2013 Transcriptome and genome sequencing uncovers functional variation in humans
