This morning there was a great article in the NY Times about mimicry and the genes causing convergent evolution, written by Sean Carroll
Our Heliconius Genome Consortium paper was just published in Nature describing the genome sequence of Heliconius melpomene and featured on the University web page. The paper showed that mimetic Heliconius can converge by exchanging genes through hybridization. Its Heliconius heurippa all over again…
Festive greetings to all our collaborators and colleagues. We can celebrate with a cover image and the first paper in a Phil Trans Roy Soc issue on speciation genomics. Nice work Nicola and everyone else who was involved.
Our Nature paper received quite a bit of press ccoverage – here are a few examples: Discover Magazine Nature Eurekalert New York Times
