• Ecological adaptation in Atlantic herring is associated with large shifts in allele frequencies at hundreds of loci 

      Han, Fan; Jamsandekar, Minal; Pettersson, Mats; Su, Leyi; Fuentes-Pardo, Angela P.; Davis, Brian W.; Bekkevold, Dorte; Berg, Florian; Casini, Michele; Dahle, Geir; Farrell, Edward D.; Folkvord, Arild; Andersson, Leif (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Atlantic herring is widespread in North Atlantic and adjacent waters and is one of the most abundant vertebrates on earth. This species is well suited to explore genetic adaptation due to minute genetic differentiation at ...
    • Epistatic regulation of growth in Atlantic salmon revealed: a QTL study performed on the domesticated-wild interface 

      Besnier, Francois; Solberg, Monica Favnebøe; Harvey, Alison C.; Carvalho, Gary R.; Bekkevold, Dorte; Taylor, Martin I.; Creer, Simon; Nielsen, Einar Eg; Skaala, Øystein; Ayllon, Fernando; Dahle, Geir; Glover, Kevin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Background Quantitative traits are typically considered to be under additive genetic control. Although there are indications that non-additive factors have the potential to contribute to trait variation, experimental ...
    • Genetic analysis redraws the management boundaries for the European sprat 

      Kvamme, Cecilie; Bekkevold, Dorte; Nash, Richard David Marriott; Jansson, Eeva; Sørvik, Anne Grete Eide; Taggart, John B.; Skaala, Øystein; Dahle, Geir; Glover, Kevin; Quintela, Maria (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Sustainable fisheries management requires detailed knowledge of population genetic structure. The European sprat is an important commercial fish distributed from Morocco to the Arctic circle, Baltic, Mediterranean, and ...
    • Recurrent convergent evolution at amino acid residue 261 in fish rhodopsin 

      Hill, Jason; Enbody, Erik D.; Pettersson, Mats E.; Sprehn, C. Grace; Bekkevold, Dorte; Folkvord, Arild; Laikre, Linda; Kleinau, Gunnar; Scheerer, Patrick; Andersson, Leif (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The evolutionary process that occurs when a species colonizes a new environment provides an opportunity to explore the mechanisms underlying genetic adaptation, which is essential knowledge for understanding evolution and ...
