Our paper ” Genomic signature of kin selection in an ant with obligately sterile workers” is finally accepted at Molecular Biology and Evolution!
Michael’s first paper in the lab and the first from a PhD student in the lab!
New paper in Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution, building on previous population genetic models to describe how combinations of sex-limited expression and diverse fitness effects (direct, parental, sib, offspring) are expected to affect rates of molecular evolution.
