Searching for genes involved in the adaptation of Drosophila melanogaster to the European climate
The aim of the present work was to identify the genes that played a role in ecological adaptation in D. melanogaster. This species, which originated in Africa, successfully adapted to a broad range of climates during the last 100.000 years. To find the genes involved, I used two different approaches: (1) a genomic region containing several ecologically relevant candidate genes and putatively carrying footprints of selection was investigated using selective sweep mapping, and (2) cold tolerancedoi:10.5282/edoc.10047 fatcat:yqefjdyerfg5hpustetkzqmwmu
