A recently published paper led by Olivia Roth (GEOMAR; Kiel) together with several members of CEES uncovers a modification of the adaptive immune repertoire of seahorses and pipefish that coincide with evolution of male pregnancy.
This week we discuss a paper on structural genomic variation. The study reports on resequencing of >1000 wild sunflowers and finds large non-recombining haplotype blocks that are associated with ecologically relevant traits and soil and climate characteristics.
