  • High Rates of Homologous Recombination in the Mite Endosymbiont and Opportunistic Human Pathogen Orientia tsutsugamushi 

    Sonthayanon, Piengchan; Peacock, Sharon J.; Chierakul, Wirongrong; Wuthiekanun, Vanaporn; Blacksell, Stuart D.; Holden, Mathew T. G.; Bentley, Stephen D.; Feil, Edward J.; Day, Nicholas P. J.; Holden, Matthew (2010-07) - Journal article
    Orientia tsutsugamushi is an intracellular alpha-proteobacterium which resides in trombiculid mites, and is the causative agent of scrub typhus in East Asia. The genome sequence of this species has revealed an unprecedented ...
  • How might epigenetics contribute to ecological speciation? 

    Smith, Gilbert; Ritchie, Michael G. (2013) - Journal article
    Speciation research has seen a renewed interest in ecological speciation, which emphasises divergent ecological selection leading to the evolution of reproductive isolation. Selection from divergent ecologies means that ...
  • A new metric for probability distributions 

    Endres, Dominik Maria; Schindelin, J E (2003-07) - Journal article
    We introduce a metric for probability distributions, which is bounded, information-theoretically motivated, and has a natural Bayesian interpretation. The square root of the well-known chi(2) distance is an asymptotic ...
  • Sexual and postmating reproductive isolation between allopatric Drosophila montana populations suggest speciation potential 

    Jennings, Jackson H.; Mazzi, Dominique; Ritchie, Michael G.; Hoikkala, Anneli (2011-03-14) - Journal article
    Background: Widely distributed species with populations adapted to different environmental conditions can provide valuable opportunities for tracing the onset of reproductive incompatibilities and their role in the speciation ...
  • Student reasoning about the divergence of a vector field 

    Baily, Charles; Astolfi, Cecilia (American Association of Physics Teachers, 2015-04-28) - Conference item
    Expanding our knowledge of student difficulties in advanced undergraduate electromagnetism is essential if we are to develop effective instructional interventions. Drawing on an analysis of course materials, in-class ...
