Abstract (English)

It is generally discussed if evolutionary novelties are caused by novel genes or by cooption of existing genes and pathways. This thesis highlights de novo acquisition of novelty via endosymbiosis as well as novelty by combination of existing material through co-option of genes and by homologous recombination of the genome. Chapter 1 summarizes the present state of the art in the study of ...

Translation of the abstract (German)

Eine wichtige Fragestellung der Evolutionsbiologie ist es, ob evolutionäre Neuerungen durch die Entstehung neuer Gene oder durch die Ko-option (Wiederverwendung) von existierenden Genen und Genkaskaden realisiert werden. Diese Arbeit stellt die Bedeutung beider Mechanismen anhand der Ameise C. obscurior dar. Einerseits bietet Endosymbiose mit Bakterien Potential für die Entstehung neuer Gene und ...
