New paper in Science!
Today, our paper on the genomic basis of fisheries-induced evolution came out in Science. We had returned to a seminal experiment in which fishing pressure had driven striking evolutionary shifts in growth rate of Atlantic silversides in only four generations. We sequenced the genomes of the fish from the experiment to examine the underlying genomic basis. Check out our surprising findings in the paper:
Therkildsen, N. O., Wilder, A. P., Conover, D. O., Munch, S. B., Baumann, H., & Palumbi, S. R. (2019). Contrasting genomic shifts underlie parallel phenotypic evolution in response to fishing. Science, 365(6452), 487–490.
