Genetics of ecological speciation in Ostrinia nubilalis

Kahne, Shoshanna C.
2014

Though significant progress in genome sequencing has advanced the search for post- zygotic reproductively isolating speciation genes, few pre-zygotic reproductive isolating barriers have been identified at the genetic level. In this study a sex-linked candidate ecological speciation gene, Pdd, was located by linkage mapping and Quantitative Trait Locus (QTL) mapping. Linkage maps were constructed ... read more
