Haplotype divergence supports long-term asexuality in the oribatid mite Oppiella nova

Significance Putatively ancient asexual species pose a challenge to theory because they appear to escape the predicted negative long-term consequences of asexuality. Although long-term asexuality is difficult to demonstrate, specific signatures of haplotype divergence, called the “Meselson effect,” are regarded as strong support for long-term asexuality. Here, we provide evidence…

Phylogeographic reconstruction of the marbled crayfish origin

Procambarus fallax collections and PCR genotyping Animals were collected from various wild populations (Table S1) in compliance with state and local regulations (Georgia department of natural resources scientific collection permit 115621108, state of Florida collection permits S-19-10 and S-20-04). DNA was isolated from abdominal muscle tissue using SDS-based extraction and precipitation…

Comparative genomics provides insights into the aquatic adaptations of mammals

Species invasions into novel habitats mark major transitions in the evolution of life on Earth. Some of these are relatively ancient, such as the vertebrate transition from the oceans to life on land (∼375 Mya) or the evolution of arboreal vertebrate species (∼160 Mya). When divergent lineages transition to the…

Ancestral polymorphisms shape the adaptive radiation of Metrosideros across the Hawaiian Islands

Significance Some of the most spectacular adaptive radiations of plants and animals occur on remote oceanic islands, yet such radiations are preceded by founding events that severely limit genetic variation. How genetically depauperate founder populations give rise to the spectacular phenotypic and ecological diversity characteristic of island adaptive radiations is…

Whole genome species clustering

I don’t think there is a “best” approach in your situation, given 1) the taxonomy of the group is probably still flaky. 2) being draft genomes, they probably are spotty and have sizeable gaps, and maybe even contaminants. Repeat regions are often left out of such assemblies. Actually, a good…

BUSCO installation and run

BUSCO installation and run 2 That unil.ch link looks a bit too complicated, these are the commands I ran to get BUSCO via Singularity: Download the image: singularity pull Run the image with example genome.fasta, assuming it’s a genome and a plant: singularity run -B $(pwd):/busco_wd/ busco_v5.2.2_cv1.sif busco -l…
