      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 ...

      Ecological adaptation is of major relevance to speciation and sustainable population management, but the underlying genetic factors are typically hard to study in natural populations due to genetic differentiation caused ...
    • Moderate nucleotide diversity in the Atlantic herring is associated with a low mutation rate 

      Feng, Chungang; Pettersson, Mats; Lamichhaney, Sangeet; Rubin, Carl-Johan; Rafati, Nima; Casini, Michele; Folkvord, Arild; Andersson, Leif (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-06-30)
      The Atlantic herring is one of the most abundant vertebrates on earth but its nucleotide diversity is moderate (π = 0.3%), only three-fold higher than in human. Here, we present a pedigree-based estimation of the mutation ...
