They fly after all – two papers reporting genome scan analyses using microsatellite markers located within or close to physiologically important genes (=PIGs) have been now published on the pages of Molecular Biology and Evolution (IF = 9.87).
Shimada Y, T Shikano and J Merilä (2010) A high incidence of selection on physiologically important genes in the three-spined stickleback, Gasterosteus aculeatus. Mol Biol Evol, in press.
Shikano T, J Ramadevi and J Merilä (2010) Identification of local and habitat dependent selection: Scanning functionally important genes in nine-spined sticklebacks (Pungitius pungitius). Mol Biol Evol, in press.
