Postmating, Prezygotic Isolation among species of the Drosophila virilis subgroup
(University of Winnipeg, 2010-12-01)
Reproductive barriers between sexually reproducing organisms prevent interbreeding and gene flow between species. Early studies of reproductive isolation focused on prezygotic and postzygotic isolating mechanisms, yet ...
Genome-Wide Regulatory Interactions in the Early Stages of Drosophila Speciation
(University of Winnipeg, 2020-12-15)
Speciation occurs when reproductive barriers prevent the exchange of genetic information between individuals. A common form of reproductive barrier between species capable of interbreeding is hybrid sterility. Genomic ...
It's JustiFlied: The Endogenous Retrovirus K Integrase Induces Motor Disturbances in Transgenic Drosophila
(University of Winnipeg, 2022-12-13)
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is an incurable neurodegenerative disease characterized by the loss of cortical and spinal motor neurons. Endogenous retrovirus K (ERVK) is a genomic viral symbiont that has been associated ...
