Coding vs. non-coding variants Mutations produce novelty. The kind of novel variants on which selection acts. These variants fall within two broad categories depending on location in the genome: protein-coding and regulatory sequences. The former pro...
When one lines up the genomes of related species, they vary in more than the protein-coding sequences. In fact, most differences fall outside these regions, given the small fraction they represent. Genomes differ with respect to sequences that regulate...
To study the evolution of a body part or a trait, one needs to address two questions. First, what is the trait for? Second, how could it evolve by small steps that gave some advantage to the organism that carried them? It is also necessary to suggest a...
