Accelerated evolution of developmentally biased genes in the tetraphenic ant Cardiocondyla obscurior

Schrader, Lukas ; Helanterä, Heikki ; Oettler, Jan


Plastic gene expression underlies phenotypic plasticity and plastically expressed genes evolve under different selection regimes compared with ubiquitously expressed genes. Social insects are well-suited models to elucidate the evolutionary dynamics of plastic genes for their genetically and environmentally induced discrete polymorphisms. Here, we study the evolution of plastically expressed ...
