Evolution of evolvability under fluctuating selection
Empirical evidence suggests that fluctuating selection is a major evolutionary mechanism. The most straightforward consequence of rapid changes of the fitness function is the induced response of the mean phenotype in the population. Yet, repeated back-and-forth evolutionary trajectories are also suspected to affect the genetic architecture underlying the phenotypic characters subject to continuous adaptation. In order to better (...)

Probabilistic approaches for detecting and locating whole genome duplications.
Whole Genome Duplications (WGDs) can be difficult to detect when they are old and when synteny has been disrupted by genome rearrangements. To test the presence of WGDs on a species phylogeny, I will present two methods which do not require synteny information and build strength from the phylogenetic framework. They rely on a probability model for the evolution of gene families on a species tree with WGDs. Both (...)
