NEWS:

JAN 2016
* We have two significant new papers, as featured in a recent UW press release!  Our
PNAS paper shows that wing size evolution in Ethiopian flies was accompanied by a loss of developmental canalization.  Our Nature Communications paper shows the genetic basis of a female-specific color dimorphism under ancient balancing selection.  Believe it or not, the latter paper is now the subject of a Shakespearean sonnet!  On Samuel Illingworth's blog, you can read or hear "Rough in Love".
