New paper out as a preprint in Molecular Biology and Evolution: Abundance and Distribution of Transposable Elements in two Drosophila QTL mapping resources. This paper describes the extent of polymorphism for transposon insertions in two Drosophila melanogaster population samples (the DGRP and the DSRP).

The lab is going to the Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution (SMBE) meeting in Chicago from July 7-11. Kevin Thornton will be talking in the symposium on the molecular evolution of structural variants. Rebekah Rogers will be presenting a poster on the effects of structural variation on gene expression in Drosophila yakuba, and Jim Baldwin-Brown will be presenting a poster on simulations of experimental evolution experiments. Finally Daniel Matute, currently a postdoc with Molly Przeworski at the University of Chicago, will be presenting a poster on natural hybridization between D. simulans and D. sechellia, where he makes use of some of the resequencing data generated by the Thornton lab.
