Asymmetric gene flow in Phlox

Federico RodaRobin Hopkins and colleagues used genomic analyses to examine the role of gene flow in flower color divergence in Phlox drummondii. Comparing transcriptomes between four Phlox species, they found asymmetric gene flow consistent with the asymmetric morphological divergence in flower color. The results are published in Molecular Ecology. abstract »
